Squirrel versus pheasant

Now red squirrels might be very small, and very cute, but they are cheeky little scamps and not shy of a bit of a scrap when there is some food at stake. Even when there opponent is several times its size!

I have just witnessed this….

1. Mr Pheasant has taken a break from trying to make his bed comfortable, and has spotted a snack waiting. Brilliant, thinks he, and settle for a good feed….

2. Uh Oh… he isn’t the only one who thought it for time for a bedtime snack, and a little furry face has appeared…. with its eye on the prize. But there are bulky bottoms blocking access from this side…

3. …. if I can’t get at you past your large feathered bottom, maybe I can get at you from this side….
