Urban Rabbits

It is not too difficult to imagine how foxes, with their long legs and ground-consuming lope,  penetrate our inner cities but how did a small mammal like this rabbit arrive in the Pavilion Gardens? It's not as though it could have set out down the A23 one night. There must presumably be a chain of breeding colonies stretching from  the Pavilion all the way back to Patcham or somewhere else on Brighton's rural border. Even so it is difficult to imagine how they leap-frogged areas of dense urban development such as the London Road shops.
