Red squirrels (again)

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.

I expect the tufts will look better when they are fully grown.

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.
