    It did look a little headless, but then are squirrels generally headless, in every sense-sability....

    I guess I've become too used to squirrel antics....

    On an interesting note, the quest to contain the grey squirrel numbers here has taken a turn for the interesting.

    They are eating meal worms, the only food we've been leaving out. When I say eating, I don't mean a quick taster and yuk, I mean feasting!

  • Last year at least one of our Squirrels discovered the plums on our little plum tree (about 5 feet tall and in a pot) which had a good crop of plums on it then. We had already enjoyed half a dozen of the plums and luckily we saw the Squirrel going at it, carrying one off and returning to the tree with a look of determination. We rushed out, scaring off the Squirrel, and rescued the remaining plums, ripe or not, to prevent the Squirrel from stealing any more. We will have to keep a close watch on it this summer or we will lose out entirely. Wondering about Squirrel for dinner (and I don't mean as a guest--lol!)...or possibly transportation but we would need to buy a live trap.

    Kind regards,

  • When I posted my Kingfisher pics here a little while ago I remembered I had similar ones of Kestrel displaying the same behaviour but couldn't find where I saved them. Finally found them while looking for something else.
