    Cheeky squirrel

    It amazes me the lengths animals will go to get some food - the pigeon just hangs around until he sees a load on the floor whilst the squirrel is happy to hang upside down via his tail stuffing his face....

    Never a dull moment in my garden.....

    rats with furry tails

    I think you'll find it's hanging on by it's back feet and the tail is being used for balance.

    Their problem solving skills are impressive though.

    I'm with Prince Charles on these blighters - shoot the lot of 'em!

    I know they can be a pain but I rather enjoy watching them. They feed out of my hand sometimes when I'm outside. I also have regular visits from the same black birds, sparrows & various blue tits. All quite happy to come quite close when I'm putting out various foods. The robins also feed out of my hand sometimes.

    Only see Red ones here (for obvious reasons )

    They are rather more shy so don't hang around for long, although there is one that always takes the same route around the garden.
