I went for a walk in the Humber Valley last weekend, to see the egrets one last time before they head south for the winter. There were only a few of them left – many have already started the trip.
I saw this squirrel eating a chestnut beside the path. He let me get quite close, because he was absolutely determined not to let go of the nut. He was a very messy eater – nut bits all over the place!
