are one of those wildlife animals that we love and/or hate in equal measure. Whilst undeniably cute looking they can be destructive on the allotment or in the garden.
There are plenty of greys on the allotment site but they keep mainly to the trees just outside the perimeter fence and nearby areas. Luckily my plot is out in the middle so I’m rarely troubled by them.
At home there are plenty of trees out the back and front where I often see them clambering about. In recent months there has been one out the front which thanks to it’s loo-brush tail is very distinctive. I’m told that’s due to mites which thrive in the squirrels dray (nest). Although it looks rather odd it doesn’t seem to affect it’s ability to scamper up and down the trees.
I’ve yet to take any photos to squirrels at home or on the plot unlike some blog friends. A month ago Glo invited us to Meet Quigley!, last week Nikki had this close encounter, a few years ago Uphilldowndale was concerned about Nutty Drivers and how about NiC’s superb photo Squirrel which he mentions had a rather threadbare tail but was nothing like as bad as the one I mentioned above!
