I fully expect that tomorrow it will bring a small towel and a cake of soap with it banghead :weep: :doh:

Leave a little bell handy in case it wants some warm water. :)

cute, butterfly. Twice this week I have seen a squirrel. The first was out in the car park near small plot but running away from it. wondered if it had been eating the starling food. And this morning it was near my door, but out on the path going toward the garden. Seen me and went back. Not been this close to the house or garden before.

Update on the squirrel. looked out of kitchen window around 4:35 pm and the squirrel was in the new hanging feeder I put up on the small plot. Got camera, but was gone by the time I was ready. All the food was gone, but starlings had some of it this morning.

You may need to withdraw the bird feeding for a while in the hope it will go elsewhere. They are very persistent while there is a food reward for their efforts. :(
