Like many nature lovers in the UK, at this time of the year we are avidly following Springwatch on the TV. It's a great programme, it's accessible for anyone who's just starting to get interested in nature but it's got enough interesting facts in there to keep more serious naturalists happy too. There's also lots of live webcams following different species of birds on their nests (this year the species include grasshopper warbler, oystercatcher and pied flycatcher) with insights into their personal lives, which often rival soap operas for drama and intrigue. It's essential viewing really.
However there is a distinct lack of rabbits on Springwatch. Apart from a brief moment in yesterday's segment of the show from Skomer Island in Wales, where the bunnies were shown next to the puffins (who nest in old bunny burrows), rabbits are usually only seen when they feature as food for some predator.
Well, Charlotte at Cottontails Baby, with the help of her adorable rabbit Humphrey, has put together these wonderful spoof videos to offer an alternative Springwatch with more bunnies. We're promised more too, which I'm really looking forward to!
