It knows I though it was a Red Squirrel as now its being very blatant in its stealing of my Apples.

Brave and Brash Grey Squirrel. The subject is closed now and never to be re-opened (well unless it does tricks). Its very brave now even looking at me as I take the picture. Well Squirrel watch needs to be over before my family form an intervention group. What a day of hope to be dashed that its an every day GREY one. Well thank you x P1090394 (2) P1090419 (2) P1090423 (2) P1090425 (2)

Not a Red Squirrel :( However, a sneaky Grey Squirrel :)

Well the Red Squirrel Survival Trust have confirmed that said Squirrel is not a RED one.

Sorry to disappoint you but its a grey.  There’s a red tinge to the fur but the ears and tail are unmistakeable.
Many thanks for sending a picture.  You’d be surprised how many people don’t.

Kind regards,
RSST

I am slightly disappointed as at 2.15 pm to day I got these lovely snaps of him/her.

Squirrel Watch

Morning of 20/07/15 I find myself obsessing over a little creature that I found in the trees behind my house yesterday. I was lucky enough that he/she decided to come back and visit yesterday evening.  So what do I find myself doing this morning instead of getting my 10 year old ready for school? I find myself sat with coffee in hand at my back window staring out at the said trees for any glimpse of he/she visiting again.

Yesterday I even sent an email to The Red Squirrel Survival Trust asking them to verify if the said squirrel is a red one. Oh what has my life come to that I take more time on Squirrel Watch then I do checking that 10 year old has boxers, matching socks on.

Pictures of yesterday evening watch  in case you are as obsessed as me and can’t start your day with out a squirrel fix.P1090241 (2) P1090246 (2) P1090259 (2) P1090275 (2) P1090278 (2)

Update at 08:07 no sighting today as yet. I have to tell myself to work today and not look out of the window with camera in hand. 

09:13 spotted the little mite but not quick enough with camera, now must move away and do some work, not sure squirrel watch is a valid excuse to take time off.
