08/12: ALL'S FAIR ......

Shouldn't be doing this as we're leaving for the airport in about 8 hours and  need to deliver Xmas cards locally, take the recycle bins out, eat and get a couple of hours sleep before we leave home at 'silly hour' (2.30am departure for 6.10am flight).

Thanks for all the tips and advice etc re. pesky squirrels - I coated the peanut feeder in Cayenne pepper but despite squirrels supposedly not liking the taste (birds don't mind) they've carried on with their demolition work.

David's idea for a squirrel proof feeder:


I love the look of these 'Twirl a Squirrel' devices which are activated by the weight of the squirrel on the feeder  ... but they are expensive and the reviews are very mixed about their durability.   Good for a laugh though.  In most videos I've seen the squirrel falls off fairly quickly ... but this one is hanging on in there LOL



Right, that really is all from me

Thanks Jo
