Squirrel update


I can has peanuts!
I can has peanuts!
The squirrel can indeed reach the bird feeder by clinging onto the wall with his hind toes and stretching out into space.
See how he does it!
See how he does it!
By leaning out of the window, I managed to get this shot of the squirrel at full stretch, trying to eat the birds' peanuts.

Sometimes you go looking for wildlife, sometimes the wildlife comes to you...

Because I had to critique a bunch of stories from my fiction writing students, I couldn't go out taking photos today, but I just couldn't ignore this little chap who came onto the conservatory roof.

Grey squirrel

His boldness probably explains yesterday's mystery, to whit: why was the bird feeder no longer on its hook outside my study window and instead was lying on the conservatory roof below? I had assumed that either a) the birds had been particularly quarrelsome and dislodged it or b) being empty and therefore light it had blown off during the high winds the other night. Now I suspect that a squirrel was somehow involved. :) Collapse )

When I last saw him, he was climbing over the neighbours trellis trying to get at their bird feeders.
