I had a lovely morning in the forest with the squirrels. Compared to a couple of weeks ago the light is improving fast now. Five squirrels turned up, although not all of them hung about long. There was one female and she had muddy paws and dirt on her face, so I named her Miss Messy. A few of the other squirrels are easily recognised. One of them has a white tip on it's tail, another a very patchy fur coat, and there is one who doesn't look very healthy with a bare-skinned nose and very pitiful tufts. For the moment Miss Messy seems to be the boss and she chases off the males.
