1) Mr Colin Squirrel

Cameron called him Colin and I think the pictures say the rest…

No 1

NO 2

No 3.

This little guy spent the whole of yesterday playing in our garden and on our deck. He even helped clean up after lunch, nibbling on the crumbs. I couldn’t quite believe how close he let me get to take his picture. Read the rest of this entry »

Mr. Fudgey

Anyone who has been reading my mother-in-laws blog will already know the story of the pesky little squirrel who now goes by the name of Mr Fudgey.

For those of you who haven’t read Jackie’s blog let me give you a little recap. Mr Fudgey (so named due to his coloring, and also due to a popular brand of biscuits)…

Mr. Fudgey

…first appeared in the bird box in my in-laws garden back in February. We initially found him quite amusing until he successfully destroyed several bird feeders and refused to move along. It’s now May and he is still there.

As time has moved on this little guy has got braver and braver. It doesn’t matter how much we chase him, he just sits and looks at us as much to say ‘what you going to do?’. Cameron manged to get these photos the other day without Mr. Fudgey even twitching. In fact I think he quite likes his new career as a model!

Lunch!

Lunch!

Luckily for this little red squirrel, Cameron, has taken quite a liking to him and the good news is that he only costs us a few packets of sunflower seeds every couple of weeks. I’ve got a feeling he isn’t going anywhere in a hurry…

Supper!
