Rabbit Rabbit

Rabbit tracks in the snow

Last Saturday morning we managed to get down to Gibralter Point Nature Reserve before anyone else and were very surprised at the number of animal tracks left in the light covering of snow that had fallen overnight. Every year this is our ritual outing as an antidote to the Rock and Blues up the road. My friend David makes every visit a fantastic wildlife adventure spotting and hearing birds that you would never notice otherwise. Highlight this visit was a short eared owl visiting us from Scandinavia and casually swooping across the snow covered sand dunes at 10am in the morning.
