The rabbit sat at the edge of the forest, aware that something wasn’t quite right.
The air smelled funny, and the moon cast a bluish tinge over the landscape instead of the silvery hue it should have done.
One by one, other animals came to join it, all looking out from the trees across the lake.
Deer, badgers, squirrels, foxes, rats, voles, even slow worms, frogs and lizards all gathered together, united in their curiosity.
It was the exodus of birds overhead that raised the alarm causing them all to turn and flee.
The fire devastated much of their habitat, but loss of life was minimal as the heavenward sign had not been ignored and instinct for survival kicked in.
