Bright Eyes

A Fansite for Watership Down and the Animals of Farthing Wood


Website created on 6th March, 2019.


Welcome to Bright Eyes, a fansite for the wonderful books, Watership Down by Richard Adams and The Animals of Farthing Wood series by Colin Dann. I decided to create this site because of the recent BBC/Netflix production of Watership Down, and went searching for a fan forum on the fandom. While doing so, I found that there also some interest in The Animals of Farthing Wood, and that inspired me to create this. What will you find on here? Hopefully some information on the books, films and tv series relating to Watership Down and The Animals of Farthing Wood. There may also be a section for fan art and fan fiction if I ever get around to it and a forum to discuss them, and I also hope to have a section on similar books in the genre so that people can track them down and read if they want to find them.

I am not new to making fan sites as I run dead-winters-night.uk, which is mainly for science fiction and fantasy sites. As Watership Down and The Animals of Farthing Wood are much more of a niche taste then these, I decided that they would be best hosting this site elsewhere. I don't expect the following to be very large and need a bit of a break from the sci-fi and fantasy fandoms, but this is my first love and something I would have created in the 90s had I had access to the internet and a pc in those days.
