  Ready for winter
One of my great pleasures is my bird table. I buy premium Robin Mix bird food from Pets at Home, add dried insects, sunflower seeds and raisins to it, and each day I put a big scoop of it out for the birds, along with a couple of fat balls.

I get lots of birds visiting, as well as plenty of squirrels. One, who I recognise as a daily guest, has a very healthy appetite. I think he's probably the fattest squirrel in Essex by now. But hopefully he should survive the winter with that extra layer he's packed on in recent weeks. He has the chubbiest arms I've ever seen on a skwerl.

That is one FAT squirrel!

I recently put a new bell on my bicycle. I noticed that the tone of this really scares the squirrels, which is a good thing. I really don't want to run over another squirrel on my bike.
Whoa...that is a seriously chunky squirrel. He's going to have to start shopping in the husky section of the store.
I can not believe the size of that squirrel. If the old wives tales are true you are in for a very cold winter. I am Mrs. Doohickie by the way. I've added you to my blogspot so I don't have to go through the Mr.'s to read yours.
