Red Squirrel Watching in My Hidden Galloway Garden

It is warm, it is sunny, so a perfect evening to step from my desk to sit in my garden and watch the little red squirrels go about their squirrely business. And it was a busy evening for the squirrels, I observed 4 individuals – the twins, a different other young one (not a twin) and a different adult (different meaning not Molly). I guess squirrels enjoy a warm sunny evening too, they were certainly enjoying that the trees were bursting into leaf and providing lots of fresh things to eat.

Mouse versus hazelnut – an short adventure into vine

I have meant to give video a shot for a while, so with increasing amounts of chat about the success of the 6 second vine video i thought that at the least I should give that a go/. So it was just a case of waiting for a suitable subject, I didn’t have to wait long thankfully, as my patience is short, before a little mouse ascended the nut post to nab the currently absent squirrels hazelnut.

The result is seen below in a short looping video.

Shadowy cattle stand softly dreaming with wide-open eyes.
