I drive the same B roads to work each day and my animal count is huge this summer. Was far lower last year when i had the valver. Stuff just sits and looks at me in the 172 and the number of bend there is theres no chance of missing them. Normally its a them or the car situation and the car always wins.

10ish rabbits
2 hares
Countless partridges
1 or 2 rats

nah its all black clios - ive had a few rabbits and a cunting pigeon which hit my bonnet at 65mph - lovely little crack and dent there now!
i gave up counting rabbits last year! must have been at least 30, they sit on the duel carrigage way, and despite my valver being stupidly loud, they hardly ever moved!

***thump*** bounce bounce

hit my first rat the other week too! that was a new one,never got one of them before, and some tiny little mouse type thing, (probably a mouse ;) )

also hit many a phesant, a badger, and a cat
