It's not just rabbits that seek refuge in the arable crops. Following on from our rabbit long netting whilst combining there were some rats to deal with.
The terrier was working along the rows of straw using her nose to pin point her quarry.
We saw a bit of action at harvest time when we long netted one of the local fields I carry out pest control on.
This young fox came out of the wheat just ahead of the combine.
Waiting patiently by one of the nets before the action.
Lurcher on guard in case any miss or slip the net as the combine moves in. Note how the net appears almost invisible from this angle.
Untangling a rabbit from one of the nets.
Some rabbits, after bolting ahead of the combine then tried to squat in the stubble.
Not all bolt at speed, some come slowly.
Right, bring it back now!
