Despite saying that we would return to the hide without dogs, we actually took Pansy......it just didn't seem right having a walk without a dog! The plan was that she would chase her ball on the way there and be so pooped that she would settle down quietly in the hide but you know what they say about 'best laid plans'!
However, any noise she did make was not enough to put this squirrel off his nuts. I still had to zoom in a fair bit but at least he was a bit nearer. Note the two Coal Tits on the branch above who were hoping for some crumbs.
Must ask Santa for a super duper camera with mega zoom lens for Christmas.
