That would be illegal and could land you a nice hefty fine for doing it! Leave the ones you have and they will soon breed.
They are rabbits, after all !!

ok i have just managed to get some land its full of woodies and crows and the odd rabbit, can anybody get hold of any live bunnys to introduce back onto the land its mainly cow fields. but a few fields he has just left and doesnt use them for anything so i think thats my best bet. i dont mind paying for them, but its if you have a place to keep them till i can collect at a weekend. iam in sheffield will collect from chesterfield sheffield rotherham doncaster barnsley ect ... if anybody can help please pm me.
Lets see if I got this right... you just acquired NEW land to practice the art on and you think its acceptable to introduce more pests just for your enjoyment. Tell you what fella if I was the landowner and found you doin this you would be off and I'd make sure I'd tell everyone.

I would hazard a guess the farmer wouldn't be hugely impressed. Even if it is a field he doesn't use for anything, do you think the rabbits are just going to sit in that field and not go beyond the hedge???

The Pest Act 1954[indent=1]
- It is the responsibility of the occupier of the land to control rabbit populations. MAFF or DEFRA as it is now known, have the power to enforce this work.

you need a movement order to relocate any wild animals ,.......................lets know how you get on

Right, that's the moral situation sorted, now for the legal situation.
There is NO law that prevents the release of HEALTHY rabbits onto land.
There is also no such thing as a 'movement order' to relocate wild animals in general. It are, however, laws which prevent the release of a certain species (not rabbits).
If anyone wants to argue the point, then please quote relevant and valid legislation, not 'what I was told' nonsense.

i could understand if i was gonna let them loose onto open fields then yes it would be idiotic, but iam not. end of the day they will be kept penned in safe and well cared for, just like game birds the only difference is on is classed as a pest and one as game,
