Eating

For the last few days, our fat-ball feeder in the tree, in front of our house, has been assaulted by young Blue Tits, Sparrows, Great Tits, Starlings and anything else looking for a nutritious and free meal.  Yesterday afternoon however, things took a step further.  Amid much twittering, scolding, fluttering about and general melee, Malcolm came to me and said "have a look at what's in the tree."  Thinking to see the usual Woodpigeons, Magpies, Collard Doves, etc.  I was surprised to see this little charmer...
It's the first time we've seen a Squirrel in the tree and apart from the fact that it was undoubtedly a contender for the title of 'cutest little creature in the world', we are not spending money on bird food, simply to feed the squirrels.
That having been said, there's no denying he was a sweetheart!
