Red squirrel

Are the squirrels in the third photo clones? They appear to be all the same, even in the same stance.

Red Squirrel

There is always 1 squirrel which visits the bird feeders several times a day and a second squirrel has been seen several times over the past 5 weeks.

The three squirrels have only been seen together at the feeders twice within the 5 weeks.

2 squirrels, possibly 3, were seen feeding on the Wych Elm (Ulmus glabra) prior to been seen at the bird feeders for the first time.

Cheers for now, Calum.

Garden visitors

I've just noticed you get pine martins and red squirrels . . . I get house sparrows . . . some how that does not sound as impressive! Though we do get siskin in the winter.

I get most of the neighbourhood's cats. Now that's really lacking in impressiveness. And one of them killed one of my goldfinches last week (didn't even bother to eat it) - double rubbish!

Rubbish gardens

By-eck! Gill, we sound like the three Yorkshire men in the Monty Python sketch trying to outdo each other for the most rubbish childhood (garden in our case).

Please note: did I say Yorkshire man? I may live on this side of the Pennines but I grew up on the other side; now we knew all about hard childhoods in Lancashire, you Yorkshire men had it easy by comparison, I remember when . . . .
