Old rabbit burrow.

I was out with the dogs today and passed from one field into another through an un-gated gateway, at the end of an old and overgrown Hawthorn hedge where a gatepost once stood there is a very old and unused rabbit hole, it must be 4 or 5 years since I have seen any evidence of life there.
So today I glanced over at it as I passed by and it seemed a little larger than usual, so I had to have a closer look didn't I! lol
It wasn't much bigger, not large enough for a fox, anyway something caught my eye sitting in the entrance to the hole, - a dead female Blackbird!! no visible marks or injuries on her, just looked as if she had sat down and died.  

Watch that space.
