Tomorrow may be the day when a new garden visitor finds a feeder put up especially for it! Containing a good mix of nuts, the red squirrel will need to learn how to use the hinged roof to get at the food. This is going to be fun to watch, take photos of and capture video footage. It’s also a bit of gardenwatching I never expected to be doing, as my sidebar has stated…
“My small garden is in Perthshire, Scotland. I don’t have salmon in my pond, red deer in my borders, ospreys nesting in my acers or red squirrels at my peanut feeders! Nor do I have the world’s highest hedge, paths exciting enough for the serious cyclist and enough of a lawn for golf!….”

Apologies to regular blog visitors, more red squirrel photos 🙂
This red squirrel doesn’t stay still long, I love when it looks straight at me 🙂
Getting photos as it jumps from the bird table is a challenge (peanut in mouth).
A lucky capture as it launched in my direction with another peanut to cache.
This is my favourite of today’s ‘one hour by the window with a camera’ 🙂
The red squirrel has found the nuts placed on the birdbath stand!
Just behind it, higher on a post, is the squirrel feeder… getting warm 😉
Tomorrow, might also be the day for a new venture in gardenwatching! I’m waiting on a delivery 🙂
Enjoy your Sunday garden and wildlife watching in your part of the world. Please share what you are seeing as November draws to a close. It’s definitely an interesting time of the year in wildlife terms and our gardens really can be a great place to see it that’s for sure 🙂
