Totally agree. When you are hitting nests in December then you know there's going to be a lot extra. Trouble is, have you noticed the increasing number of buzzards? At the end of the day I bet it balances out.

There has never been many buzzards in my area,foxes are a rare sight too as this area is keepered with numerous release pens so foxes get quite a hammering.I suppose that helps the rabbits to breed without much predation ,well not yet anyway!

The big problem over here is red kites.People feeding them in their gardens are causing them to gather in huge numbers and they are decimating ground nesting birds.

There didn't seem to be a lot of rabbits about till they started breeding now there's great numbers everywhere . Lamping them doesn't seem to be making much effect on there numbers
