On the Feeder

A couple of quick shots tonight of a young great tit enjoying one of the bird feeders at work.

Plus another youngster. This time a young rat peering out of one of the rat holes that pepper the fringes of Falmer pond.

    How do they get those big nut out of those small holes?
    The rat reminds me very much of the passage where Mole meets the Water Rat.

      dW, they manage to break off small fragments of peanut. The other feeders have seed, plus all the fat blocks.

      The pond is perfect for rat holes. They have runs that mean they can move all the way round without getting their feet wet!
