    to rustle like a small animal in the bracken

    A cool wind sprang down from Rossett Gill to rustle like a small animal in the bracken.
    (Viriconium; M. John Harrison)

    Would you be so kind as to tell me how it should be read:

    1) to rustle [like a small animal] in the bracken;
    2) to rustle [like a small animal in the bracken].

    Thanks.
