A Grey Squirrel makes a short visit to the patio. It's not a frequent visitor to the garden. I wonder whether the wet weather has prompted it to leave the wood in search of easier pickings in the gardens along our road, which will now have plenty of food on bird tables and peanut hangers.
Next door's Sunflower still hangs, heavy and intact, like a giant-sized shower head over the hedge. The squirrel hasn't nibbled any of it. One year when we grew sunflowers, with the birds in mind, a squirrel took a fancy to them and made off with chunks of the seedhead and buried them around the garden.
Equally subdued and grey; a Wood Pigeon seen against the afternoon sky.
