Red Squirrels in the Garden!

We’ve started to see a few more red squirrels in the garden recently.  But they’ve been hard to capture on camera.  Jimmy saw one at the bottom of the garden, running along the low wall.  Then he zipped up into one of the trees.  But luckily today I caught one out of the corner of my eye at the top of the drive! He stopped to look at me in the branches of the tree…

And then he seemed to pose! He must be busy collecting moss, grass, lichen for his nest – called a drey. I hope he stays warms for winter!
