These interrogatives were addressed to the footman who had come in to say that the keeper had found one of Dagley's boys with a leveret in his hand just killed.
Brooke, who presently came and said that he would step into the carriage and go with Dorothea as far as Dagley's, to speak about the small delinquent who had been caught with the leveret.
Your little lad Jacob has been caught killing a leveret, Dagley: I have told Johnson to lock him up in the empty stable an hour or two, just to frighten him, you know.
I ventured to inquire: for Matilda had started off in pursuit of her dog, that was chasing a leveret
She hates the leveret
that runs across the path; she hates everything that is not what she longs for.
Aye, this is indeed a pied merlin, and with a leveret
under its claws, as I am a living woman.
At the bottom are two leverets
When the leverets
were born, many of the islanders were also taken with the creatures and began raising hares themselves.
But this year's count found 18 brown hares, with leverets
- young hares - seen lazing on the shingle among gorse bushes and adults chasing each other along the sea walls.
It was also lovely to see hares on the stubbles, and reassuring to know that the vulnerable leverets
haven't become fox food.
For example, in spring and early summer, with perhaps vulnerable leverets
or curlew chicks to protect, some techniques of fox control, like rie lamping, become ineective.
It tells of a special family who seek out leverets
orphaned by the hunt, rear them and set them free back into the wild.
