In homage to Beatrix Potter, I had to name it 'Nutkin'.
It soom became apparent that Nutkin had a friend. I had two red squirrels visiting the garden! Privileged, indeed. You can tell them apart by the colour of their tails.
When I first came to Wamphray there were red squirrels in the plantation near the old school, but they haven't been there for a while. I hope that my seeing them in my garden means that they are re-establishing themselves in the area.
