Today while trying to get some fencing upgraded, I was walking in front of the Lecture Hall when a rabbit tore past me, closely followed by a small brown blur. Both disappeared down the track to the houses at the bottom, then up into the field at the back, then back around again several times.

Five or six of these circuits must have been completed before I saw the small brown blur heading back towards me, still at full speed, the rabbit now nowhere to be seen. At the last minute I was spotted, and evasive action was taken, making use of an adjacent clump of reeds. But by now I had realised it was one of the ‘squeaky sausages’ that we had spotted last year.

I managed to grab a couple of photos of the little critter while it was investigating me, but it was soon gone again, back into the reeds and rocks.
