Squirrel

He’s back again to join the wild life party, checking out everything that’s on the buffet. This red squirrel visits the balcony regularly but his main interest are the monkey nuts hanging off a chair on a piece of string.

He attempts to get at the nuts from below but they are just out of reach and when a crow buzzes the balcony, causing the squirrel a fright, he hides under the chair, frozen motionless for a while. Once the danger has passed he decides to attack the nuts from a new direction and climbs the chair via the tomato plant pots.

Once on the chair he has the nuts in sight but first checks to see if anyone is at home before continuing his mission impossible.

Other party guests include: A field mouse, blue tits, great tits, crested tits, chaffinch, black redstarts, crows, magpies, bullfinch, nuthatches, robin and a few elusive night visitors.
