Okay….promise me that you won’t zoom in on this photo of a squirrel…..and his nuts!!
I SWEAR I had no idea until I got home and looked at the photo on the computer screen – honest!
I was actually disappointed with the quality of the photos I’d taken on my phone – every one was fuzzy, but there’s still…..erm…..a lot of detail on some of them!
This was one of my morning walks. It was a lovely one; late enough to miss the school kids and the dog walkers, so I wasn’t tempted to stop and natter, but I was absolutely amazed at the number of squirrels who were out and playing in the winter sunshine – so I stopped walking anyhow!
Usually I see the odd one or two squirrels, but there were masses of them, in very high spirits from the warmth I think. They were darting up and down the trees, jumping over the river and running in and out of the gardens which adjoin this wooded area. It was a lovely sight.
I did get one more reasonable-ish photo….
I showed this one (thankfully not the other one!) to my nephew, Euan, who is three, and asked him what it was. His answer? A rabbit….
Somewhat brighter than January (hurray!) but with lovely frosty grass! Taken from a bit further back this month so you can see the bin I was moaning about. On the right you can see orange tape where a recycling lorry skidded on ice and crashed through the handrail and into a garden last month.
It does, I guess, make more sense to take one from closer up so I can see if there are any changes, so here’s one I took on my mobile from the beginning of February.
Again, beautiful blue sky, which is just what we want!
Hoping to see some changes in the trees next month…..
