This has become a tale of survival on an epic scale for Miel. Having been diagnosed with myxomatosis and then staging a dramatic night time escape he seems to continue to defy the odds. I was looking down the track yesterday and I noticed him walk out of the sunflowers and start eating the grass. He let me get close enough to take this photo but he was having none of the chance of re capture and ran back into the sanctuary of the sunflowers.
But the extraordinary thing is the recovery. At one pint Miel was covered with sores and lumps and the eyes were closing up but he has survived now for a long time. This picture is not brilliantly clear but you can see the eyes are wide open.
