The Resourceful Squirrel (music theme)

The weather, time and life have got in the way of recent updates, but I have been getting some photos of the local squirrels. There’s also something of a music theme going on here.

Recycle Squirrel

This is a quick sequence I took last Friday at work. The first shot shows the squirrel perched on a fence surrounding a bank of waste dumpers at the University of Brighton, Moulsecoomb campus. The rest show the squirrel’s recycling instincts. There were several of them inside the dumpers, but this male was clearly the boss man. The shots were taken through narrow gaps in the fenced surround.

Some Squirrels

Not a lot to post about lately, so I’m making do with various photos of squirrels taken over the past few days. There are plenty of them around at work, and they are typically active at this time of year searching out food.
