Some garden mammals

Hedgehogs have always been regular visitors to the garden but never so frequent as at the moment. They often linger around the bird seed placed on the ground although whether eating the seed or the slugs there I can't tell.

Squirrels on the other hand are a very recent addition to our garden fauna and at this third sighting one had found the garden bird food to its liking.
