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
