Visitors

Bad Hobbit :}  Despite daily visits from two Red Squirrel I just haven't had a camera in the kitchen to catch the moment.  These two are stocking up for the winter if the quantity of nuts we're getting through at present is anything to go by!





Rubbish photo (through glass) but lovely to see the Greater Spotted Woodpecker back again.

  1. Hmmmmn ,,, wanted to comment on the Loweswater pics but couldn't for some reason. Just wanted to say lovely Autumnal pics. Met with a friend last week and told her about your beautiful visitors. Just had a few blustery days at Settle easing gently into Autumn ,,,, not! Gorgeous yesterday in York but very cold, rain today so stove lit early I reckon! x

    1. Not sure why you can't comment on the other pictures ... are you saying you've only just lit your wood-burner? Oh dear, you two are made of stronger stuff than us then, ours has been regularly lit for sometime now :} Daisy would be disgusted if it wasn't!

  2. No I have had it lit for some time in the evening but was thinking of lighting it this morning. I usually manage to hang on until late afternoon. It was the first thing I did when we got back from Settle on Saturday afternoon,

    1. It has to be REALLY bad for me to light the WBS during the day, ice outside and minus-something-or-another on the thermometer.

  3. Beautiful visitors Bilbo. I have heard the woodpeckers around here, but they've not returned to the feeders yet. Soon I hope!

    1. Hi Mrs Rusty, thanks for your comment. With all your trees I would guess you have a wonderful selection of birds?

  4. We haven't had a woodpecker for ages. Maybe it will visit when the weather worsens! That squirrel is just so intense a colour.
