You won't get banned for posting them, but there's another thread for G.S.s and chipmunks.

I noticed that, and observed that there seem to be three (at least) active threads on squirrels!

Basically, I have given up trying to deter the perishers and just enjoy their tactics :-P They shouldn't be here but that ain't their fault.

The law here is that if you catch one it's illegal to release it but it's also illegal to kill them unless they have been trapped first, or that's how I believe it works. If that's wrong then someone correct me please? If it's correct then it sounds crazy to me -?


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Yes, a few years ago I saw some on offer in a London supermarket, already skinned.

Entertaining little machines aren't they..

It looks as if you will have to click on the title "Squiggle on nut feeder :-( I thought that it would come up live on here?

Now! That's a proper squiggle, not one of those imports :love: We used to get them in our garden in France, but unfortunately not here.

I love the photo too Basher.

And, welcome to the forum mate! Keep em coming please.

Not great shots but they show how adaptable squirrels are.
When jumping to a stump and knowing that he will land on the side of it he twists in mid-air.
