Red squirrel snapped at last!

img_3553

Whilst I’ve seen red squirrels in my garden many times, I’ve never managed to take a photo.   (Although I did take some lovely photos of a much redder squirrel next door)

We’ve only just put this feeder up, really close to the house – about a foot from the porch doors and 4ft from the kitchen window (from where this photo was taken) and look who came to visit.  🙂

The feeder has already seen a riot of small birds too – blue tits, coal tits, robins and sparrows so far – I really can’t imagine why it’s taken us so long to think to site one closer!

    With the tufted ears, red squirrels are so cute! We have too many gray squirrels at our feeders, scaring the birds off, so then I send out the dog to chase them off. It works for a little while, giving the birds a chance to feed. 😉
