This morning while wasting time looking out of the window I witnessed something I have never seen before.
There running up the pavement was a squirrel with a large lump of something in its mouth.
On looking closer I thought it was another, maybe dead squirrel but then I realised it was a baby she had in her mouth.
She kept stopping under each car I guess to make sure it was clear to move on to underneath another before taking a run across the road and up a side street.
They have been trimming all of the trees that line our long road and I am thinking that maybe they have disturbed the squirrel's nest and it was moving all of the babies one by one.
I know lots of people think that squirrels are a pest but I like them and lets face it they don't live long either being caught by a cat or run over so I say live and let live.
This is not my picture but shows one carrying its young.
This made me think..
Why do they trim the trees when all the birds and for that, the squirrels are nesting??
