Closer view of the rabbit in SZ5280 : Cornfield near Sheepwash Farm. The swollen eyes can clearly be made out meaning blindness has set in. Judging by the condition of the rabbit and the speed it ran off when it sensed I had got too close suggests it has just caught the disease which is borne by fleas in this country. If it has not succumbed to a natural predator or any other accident it probably has about 10 days of its life left.
