  1. So cute. I wish we had Squirrels instead of Possums. I suppose its something to do with my love of Beatrix Potter stories I used to read when working as a Children’s Nanny in Sussex.

  2. Pete. I’ve been enjoying your intimate portraits of life in the garden. There is always so much on hand when you just look closely enough.
    We are lucky to have lots of wildlife too. But for the first time have just been plagued by grey squirrels which have been destroying some trees. Bizarrely they stripped all the young growth of a medium sized horse chestnut leaving it in tatters the little b@*!!+s (rascals). They are also stripping bark from trees which is a pain
    Anyway keep posting. 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 Grey Squirrels can be quite a destructive force to trees. Sadly I have seen the bark stripped off trees around here, too. And if they get in your loft, you certainly have some troubles.


  3. He looks like he’s planning mischief 🙂 To say grey squirrels are so prolific here they’ve always caused me problems photographing them. They either blend into the trees or scarper quick.
