Since we moved back up to Scotland, we've seen a few red squirrels around but mainly at a distance - usually in the woods, occasionally in the garden.

This morning, I was in the kitchen and heard something moving in the bushes outside, and caught a glimpse of a red tail vanishing out of sight. Then a little later I spied this chap through the window, as he was standing on the back of the garden bench and planning how to raid the bird feeders.

(If anyone's puzzled by the title, you're probably not of my vintage and didn't experience the Tufty Club....which, it has now been revealed, was a somewhat more sinister organisation than we young innocents realised!!)
