  Red Squirrel

After recovering from a Christmas cold I went to see the squirrels at the end of the week.  I’m back at my old squirrel place now. There was so much less light than I had anticipated in the new place that I found. In October the light had already completely disappeared. So I went back to the patch of forest where I have always been. In a few weeks time the light will improve anyway.

Red Squirrel stealing hazelnuts  

I put the feeder up and quite soon the squirrels turned up. I’ve counted at least 5 different squirrels for the moment, so that’s promising. Some of them are just happy to eat the peanuts, but two off them knew exactly what they wanted: hazelnuts! After they found all the hazelnuts that I had scattered, one of the squirrels walked straight to the box where I keep the nuts and hit the jackpot. A hazelnut dream come true.
