Squirrels and their nuts!

One has to admire the inginuity of Squirrel's. Here are some photo's of a Squirrel attempting to find a way through the defensive barrier of metal bars that surround the feeder.

This particular Squirrel was getting very frustrated and eventually gave up.

However the way to do it, at the end of the day, is very simple. Just do the same as us, take the lid off!

Normal service has been resumed....!

Its been a while since I've made any contribution to cyberspace. I don't offer any excuses for this, other than the fact that I've just not got around to putting finger to keyboard!

Anyway, Spring is here. After 2-3 weeks of lovely sunny, but cold weather during late February through to mid March it is now dull and wet, albeit a little warmer.

Some recent sightings of the feathered variety include a Pied Wagtail (above) which I photographed perched on the roof of our conservatory (the Wagtail, not me, being the one that was doing the perching!).

Below is a Goldfinch about to sample some sunflower seeds.
