When I used to lamp and if I remembered to ,I used to shake the lamp not sure it made any difference though. If the rabbit was really under pressure from the dog I’ve seen them panic and turn back out into the field.

I shake the lamp and also some time flick the light on and off. I’ve found shaking just as good has flicking the lamp on and of to bring rabbits back off the hedge.

I’ve found some places the shake works well, others it makes no difference, suppose it depends on if they’re lamped before

Shake! It’s meant to disorientate them. I didn’t used to bother but noticed all the rabbits round here know exactly where there heading with no second chances offered for a dog but with a little shake just before they hit cover it confuses them enough to make them make mistakes hitting cover then bounce back out in to the open give a dog a opportunity for a catch
