You can see rabbits almost anywhere from grass verges by roads to fields and parks. Although most rabbits live in large underground holes called warrens some now live above ground following outbreaks of myxomatosis.
The grazing habits of rabbits are essential to maintaining the short-cropped grassland of the Breckland Living Landscape. The rare stone curlew needs this open grassland to breed and the The Brecklands are home to many rare plants that would be lost without the open well grazed areas provided by rabbits, You can see this fragile and rare habitat at our reserves at Weeting Heath
, where stone curlew breed, and East Wretham Heath
