Didn't have my specs on so wondered what the large bird was to begin with!!
So pleased to see the visitor, he left so I dashed up the garden to refill the feeders
and he/she returned and had a good feed, didn't take more than six photos so it could fill it's tummy.
The spadgers are used to me poking a camera at them while they wait to take their turn on the food
Still pouring here, yes I know we need it!!!!!
Lot to learn

At £34 a ticket on the day I fell out with them ! I have been several times in the past, it's where we bought the pond/waterfall (show garden) from in 2011 ! The previous year we bought the Malvern summerhouse from there and long step ladders a couple of years later .so Mike's not keen on going each year - and bank manager certainly isn't keen on us going LOL

Brilliant capture, a red squirrel.
I also liked the photo of the spadgers lined up, almost like the good old British queuing scenario...
