We didn't need to go but a few steps when we saw rabbit trails around the edge of the yard.
They were only in the area close to the yard, not further back in the wood. And they all stopped at various holes.
I don't know if the kids expected to see creatures in the holes, but they certainly wanted to see what was down them. Some of them were just leaves, as if the rabbits had dug there and moved on. The ones at the tree bases were deep holes where we could not see the bottom.
I think Mrs. Gatty could have made a parable of the scene.
