First of all I spotted five egrets in the back field, four close enough to catch together. Pity about the cattle, they are so muddied up with this wet weather.
Then I spotted the red squirrel returning after not seeing it for five days
You can see it found an easier way into the sunflower hearts!!!! I watched and took a number of photos for about three quarters of an hour - and then
it eventually left the feeders and over to the back hedge, you can see it eyeing up the seed box where all those lovely hazel, etc nuts were waiting
I was thanking my lucky stars that I had opened it up earlier on this morning
You know when you get that excited that you drop the camera !!! only joking
Bingo !!!!!! AT LAST
Like the Starling joining in with applause
Brilliant, and all without the peanut butter that is on order, but Garden Wildlife have had difficulty in getting the orders out apparently, so I had to
make a trip to Llangefni end of last week to replenish the sunflower seeds. Never mind, chuffed to bits that it found and fed.
Lot to learn

I do miss my sightings of red squirrels, no thanks to Covid.....
Plas Newydd (somewhere I'm not expecting to visit again, this year) have similar squirrel feeder boxes, where they can lift the lid and get their food supply
Lovely photos Gaynor and a joy to see the reds, all the way, and what a shame those egrets were little and not cattle egrets!
