I assume the walls themselves are where the rabbits are living and they are unferretable? I don’t have any walls in my neck of the woods so they are all new to me! 

If you have a good Barrow you can have these Fuckels

I would longnet that as 45 yds is wide enough, just go late and on a dark night. Move slow you should  be ok.

First I'd put a gate net on it and walk with the moon up. If you catch it's a bonus if not you get to see where they run. 

I  have dry stone walls were I go and rabbits also go over the wall and not always in it.

cant you catch them in the walls in the day micky....or is it to exposed ??

i love taking them out the walls ...my little lurcher bitch is mustard at marking them in the walls...you got a spaniel i think ...will it not mark them...few purse nets after shes marked and try and get it out....small pry bar often helps...

years ago woodga was telling me this meathod ...he had a  thin sharp bar ...like a knitting needle that he would line up through the gaps in the wall then skewer the rabbit through the head then move a few rocks and remove the bunny...sound feasable i have never tried it so cant comment ...

I think you would need a near perfect night wind wise and darkness wise with it being such a narrow drop. your right about walls sometimes they are going over them onto somewhere else.

My dog  will not  mark ! it will find  anything  anywhere  but she was trained as a Gun dog ,  i don't  think  i could take to many  stones from these walls  before i was f****d off  Gentleman farmers being what they are .
