I did know that she should be due soon, but thought I would see telltale signs in time.
Today afternoon Chantal opend up a tunnel, which she must have built and sealed up right away weeks ago, and had her litter there - Yeah, babys :) . At the end of a 2meter - 6-7ft tunnel, half a meter underground :(

It was a little tricky to dig the nest up without dropping anything on it, but it was necessary to remove the soiled bedding, those big, fat flys were already in there. And it wasn't a great nest anyway, she seems to have been in a hurry, lots of fur but very little hay. 7 or 8 little wigglers, now safe and warm in the nestbox.

So, if anyone wonders how a rabbit nest looks like when they have the chance to do their shtick, that's it: (Entrance right upper corner of the pic)
