Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

The Early Bird Catches the Rabbit


When I drove up the hill early the other morning, I disturbed  the local wildlife, they ran/flew ahead of the car in a bow wave of activity and agitation.

There was an abundance of rabbits

my, what big ears you've got-1

and little birds a plenty.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Aha! So you drove up the hill! There we have it!

    Gorgeous gorgeous shots of both the rabbit and the little bird. I love the colour that is framed by the leaves in the bird picture. I am currently trying to decide what colour to paint my kitchen walls. I thought I’d found it in the stormy shots of the bay at Torch Lake, but now I think the wall round the window would look better this colour. That lovely green will frame the vegetation outside, instead of the other way round as it is here. You must come see it when it’s done.

  2. I think ‘abundance’ would be a fine collective term for rabbits. There are little ones hopping about everywhere on my walk to work at the moment. I’m obviously out and about at feeding time!

  3. Lovely images, Mrs. UHDD. I’ve been seeing more rabbits lately too, wonder why? What kind of bird is that?

Come on, join in.
