Had tea with a fantastically independent 95 yr old lady in her house hidden away at the end of long winding road at the southern end of Ullswater. She doesn't have any neighbours but is visited by 3 red squirrels, one of which was eating her nuts just a few feet from where we were sitting. The first red squirrel! Sadly her back's 'like a dog's dinner' and she hasn't been able to get about so much this year. So not a candidate for the squirrel project. I'm going to send her some calcium to add to her squirrel nuts as her squirrels looked a bit deficient. That’s the problem with peanuts. Hence the hazelnuts my lucky squirrels will (hopefully) soon be scoffing (once I've found them).
Sadly the sun has resulted in rather silhouetted photos...
