There are three squirrels that come and visit the place I’m staying at the moment. There’s Hooky, with a bent ear, there’s the little one with it’s tail half missing, and there’s Fatty, the biggest of them all. They usually turn up separately, and eat the nuts that have been left out for them. If they arrive at the same time, there are squirrel domestics. These pictures are of Fatty the squirrel – he’s the boldest of them all – none of the others would even consider coming inside, but he does. He’ll also sit around on the bars waiting for you to feed him if there are no nuts out. Cheeky little bugger.

Very cute squirrel photos – have you thought of testing Fatty’s intelligence as well as boldness by making the nuts more difficult to get at?

I don’t think they’ll vacuum pack very well.

And I’m not sure how canny squirrels are, would they have to see me put the nuts somewhere? Do they have a good sense of smell or sight? I’m not sure. Anyway, Fatty’s just comparatively bold, most of them run away if you move anywhere near them. I don’t think he’d survive stressful nut placements (not the climbing sort), but I’ll see what I can think of.
