Feeding Grey Squirrel

Because I have championed the plight of our native and fast disappearing Red Squirrels on many occasions, it may seem unusual that I also have a soft spot for their American Grey cousins.

Red Squirrels have sadly been vacant from my local area for 30 years or more and the Grey Squirrel in that time has been a regular and for me welcome sight.

The 'Tree Rat' as it is called by many of the local unbelievers is a truly wonderful, charismatic and very cheeky creature that is always a pleasure to watch.

I spent 5 minutes yesterday watching this Grey performing all manner of acrobatics while feeding on berries in a Hawthorne Tree...
