Countryside in the town.

Yesterday, while showing a house in Ard na Greine, an older residential part of Clonmel, I saw a Hawk kill a small bird in the back garden.

To me, this is an unusual sight, especially in a built-up area.

It is a mature garden all the same!

Foxes are now a common sight around the edges of town and at night in some of the larger housing estates.

Rabbits are numerous, as is evidence of them on some of the Estate green areas.

This year more than ever, there are lots of Hares in the countryside and I have seen some in certain areas of the town.

Am I alone in this?

Has anyone else noticed how it used to be the town encroaching on the countryside, now it is the countryside encroaching on the town.
