the reds are coming. we have more individual’s starting to venture closer to the republic’s borders
we have spot, dasher, stasher, little dark tail, tufty, explorer, that we know of. these two are spot and dark tail
they’re not the best of friends
this wee one is tufty, the ear tufts are starting to grow back in, or is it that because its a youngster and he/she has not cast them fully
then there is stasher, this wee one dives in grabs a nut then off it goes, then within a couple of minutes it’s back for more.
then comes explorer. a young red squirrel who seems to want to investigate everything, even the house if the door was open.
he/she is a cheeky little character
then we have dasher who does everything at a zillion miles an hour.
there is something we have noticed, since the bird feeder was commissioned, the amount of wild birds that come in to feed is staggering. but every time the woodpeckers visit, then so do the red squirrels. it’s uncanny
we have green finch great tit, blue tit, chaffinch, willow warbler, goldfinch, crossbills, robins, wrens. this place is alive…
goldfinch and willow warbler
apart from all this wildlife watching we here at republic HQ have been practicing the arty farty photos
well i think that’s enough for today
