Grey squirrel taken in the hide in Haigh Hall Plantations, he was hanging from a branch above
my head when I took this about 6ft away.

Nice David. These beggers steal the food I put for the birds. But we all want a butty.

Excellent photo that David, he looks very healthy and well groomed.

I was wishing that I had took my camera with me the other day, as I was driving through Croston I came upon a Red Squirrel sat on a wall eating something, a rare sight these days.

Does anyone know if there are still Red Squirrels to be seen in Brock wood and along Sennicar Lane?

Great shot, looks like he gets plenty of grub

That is a brilliant photo! He does look as fit as a butcher's dog!
