It has been a while since I went to see the squirrels and a few weeks since I posted their photos so I hope you don't mind a few more taken at the weekend.
This female was the most confiding.
A few of them are just starting to grow their ear tufts for the winter.
It is difficult to say how many individuals there were. Judging by the variation in colours and ear tufts I reckon I saw at least four.
The squirrel that visited my garden for a week at the end of July hasn't been seen since my last post about him. I think he moved on under pressure from the American greys but at least he knows where the food is if he wants to come back.
