  1. Has anyone else noticed a decline in the number of rabbits? I live near Bridport on the South Coast, and the number of rabbits around here has fallen by well over 50% in the last 3/4 years. Fields where I used to see 2 or 3 dozen rabbits, now have only 2 or 3. I know there are obviously loads that you don't see but the difference is stark. If I went out for an evening's rabbiting I would be confident of bringing home 5 or 6 (my record for a day is 53) - now I sometimes have to work hard to get even one. The answer is not just mixy - it breaks out from time to time, but the rabbits are much more resistant to it now and many recover. Yes the number of birds of prey and badgers are factors (this area is crawling with badgers), but only a part of the reason. The number of foxes is about the same as 11 years ago when I moved here. I understand that there are a number of new diseases which effect rabbits and which are the primary cause. Does anyone know anything about them? I don't suppose the farmers will mourn their loss but to see such a massive change in the population in such a short time is quite disconcerting. Badsworth
