Red squirrels and other wildlife in the garden

The numerous red squirrels at Cluny are very active throughout much of the day. They are fed around 0900-0930 with hazelnuts, sunflower seed, fruit and peanuts. Apart from at the feeders, if you go around the garden quietly, taking your time you should see the squirrels foraging on the ground or scampering off up a tree. 

There are stoats present especially in the area around No 5 although they are very quick and can be difficult to spot. We have now also had sightings of weasels. 

Many woodland bird species are present including 3 types of tits, bullfinch, treecreeper, chaffinch, great spotted woodpecker, nuthatch, blackbirds and song and mistle thrushes. Jays, jackdaws and buzzards are regular most days.
