Pretty Polly and nobbled Nutkin.

Since we bought a new squirrel-proof peanut feeder, the parakeets have colonised it and the blue tits and great tits hardly get a look-in. This one was particularly cute.

The feeder features a sliding metal tube. As the squirrel puts its weight on it, the tube slides down, covers the peanuts and deposits poor Nutkin on the grass. He just can't figure it out at all.

And talking of squirrels, this one looks related to a lemur! Wonder if it's suffered an injury to its tail?
