Back in the summer...

Posted by Waspie_Dwarf , in My furry, purry friends 26 January 2007 · 110 views

My Next door neighbour but one has a garden which shares a boundary with a school field. Both the garden and field have trees along the boundary. Back in the late summer or early autumn I was in my garden  when I heard a rustling in the trees. To my surprise there was a grey squirrel in the trees merrily munching on acorns. There are plenty of squirrels in my area but this was the first time in the 30 years that  have lived here that there has been one in the gardens.

I came inside and grabbed my camera and a telephoto lens. I took a few photographs. I only got the film developed yesterday so here is the squirrel:

I heard some more rustling and looked to see a bushy tail disappear behind a tree trunk. This, however, was no second squirrel. This bushy tailed mammal was the lesser spotted mental moggy aka Nyana:

Nyana seemed fascinated by this huge, bushy tailed, tree climbing rodent and set about chasing it through the trees. I rather wish I has a video camera because it was funny to watch. The squirrel was playing with Nyana, allowing her to get close and then leaping from branch to branch. This continued for several minutes until the squirrel got bored. It then climbed onto my neighbours extension, over a wall and made it's escape.

A minute or two later Nyana plodded in and gave me her best, "I wasn't up to mischief, honest", look.

The view from my bedroom isn't usually a spectacular one, but every now and then Mother Nature dips into her pots of paint are produces a sky like this.
