7.00a.m. this morning and there was one of our friendly little squirrels enjoying breakfast with one of the many Chaffinches checking to make sure that there is something left for her.
This squirrel (recognisable by its tail) ran off to hide when I went out to top up the feeders but then appeared again, almost at my feet, whilst I was still there. It appeared quite unafraid and sat up on its hind legs to look at me before sauntering off to watch from the herbaceous border. As soon as I was back indoors he/she returned to finish breakfast.
