Red Squirrel eating a nut.
There we were eating our breakfast when I spotted a red squirrel on the bird nuts in the orchard. It was being harassed by a magpie and soon disappeared into the conifers.
Later on, Jim called from our bedroom and it was back on the other bird nuts, so I ran for the camera and Jim snapped away. The light was very bright but he managed some good ones:
Look at that fabulous tail.
Hi ears had little tufts on the top.

He went back to the nuts, hanging upside down like a bird:
We have only ever had one in the garden before and we have seen them in Dillon's wood too, but rarely. They are so lovely.

I really disliked the shape it was before, so cut the ends of, rearranged them and added them to the centre. They look like eyes now.
BlackJack came to investigate!! He's so helpful. I'd already had to remove Buster.
It can be either way up.
Jim and Buster
Jim was having a 'moment' with Buster:
Buster's wound - healing well.
It was too hot for him in the sun!
Have a great Sunday everyone. I'm off into the garden.
