Focus on the Grey Squirrel

It soon became apparent that both Robins and Grey Squirrels were regular visitors to the pile of logs in front of the Wren Hide, looking for an easy meal. There were always 3-4 Grey Squirrels around and would frequently leave the ground and hop on to the pile of logs. Here they were so close that it was only possible to get head and shoulder shots. I know that Grey Squirrels are responsible for the disappearance of the Red Squirrel over most of England and prey on young birds during the breeding season, but I still find them rather endearing and very photogenic.
