Still no sound of cuckoo but the swallows have returned over the weekend which I'm sure is earlier than last year.

Tragedy has struck the rabbit family over the weekend, the 2 baby bunnies have ventured from the burrow in the back garden to join the other rabbits on the grassy area at the front and yesterday I saw a crow pecking over a tiny rabbit carcass. As I've only seen one small bunny since I am assuming it was the brother or sister who has bitten the dust.
I suppose that's nature for you.

Oh No!! It's nature but it's horrible, poor little creatures and they were so beautiful.

Yes it's most disturbing as the youngsters seem to be left to fend for themselves at only a few days old. I have to say that I saw worse about a year ago when a rat came and snatched a bunny from the garden and didn't kill it quickly. Hopefully this crow incident was swifter and fortunately I didn't see it happen as that's when you feel so helpless to the cycle of nature.
I expect mother rabbit will replace it with a new litter!
