I'm getting a frequent visit from a squirrel but most of the time it is leaving the bird food for the birds. Although I haven't seen it eating anything else I think is must be pillaging my hazel nut tree. This is fine by me as usually many of them drop from the tree and I never to be found. The few I do retrieve are off the lawn and if I'm honest are not particularly tasty.

I make my garden, and food in it, available for all wildlife. Unfortunately, my property is in an awkward place, where you have to cross a very busy road, so the squirrels and hedghogs have problems reaching it, without being run over :( . I think a squirrel tried, but ended up dead. RIP :(

That's very sad but finding a home where there isn't traffic zooming past is not easy nowadays. A cul-de-sac is your best bet or if the lottery pays out an house standing in it's own grounds up a private drive. Good luck with next week's numbers :)
