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 :)

I get an occasional visit from a Squirrel. Today was one of those days. It made a b-line for the hanging feeders up to the point where it spotted me watching from behind the patio door. It then withdrew and went off looking like it was going to try it's luck elsewhere. I also went elsewhere at that point but returned less than two minutes later. Guess who was back and wrapped around the SFH feeder :squirrel: I made my presence felt and it cleared off for good this time. :nod:
