Anglesey Red Squirrels

I don't share too much about my private life on this blog, but thought you might like to see a photo of one of our garden visitors. 

Here on the Isle of Anglesey, the grey squirrels were erradicated and the red squirrels re introduced.  Since 2013 the red squirrels have thrived and we are very fortunate to have some visit our garden.

We have a wall mounted squirrel feeder and our friend made a squirrel sized picnic table for them to feast from.  I position the table by my craft room sliding door.  This allows me to watch them at close quarters with the door open and take some pics if I'm quick enough.

The squirrels that visit our garden appear to have firm favourites in the food department.  In first place is hazelnuts (in shells), they like to bury them in my pots or in the lawn and then return later in the day to collect them.  In second place are peanuts and in third position are sunflower seeds.

These furry friends are a pleasure to observe and even Rosie, our Springer Spaniel likes to watch them too.
