Red squirrel snapped at last!

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!
