We have an abundance of lovely garden birds and the occasional seafaring bird visiting our garden for seeds and fatty treats. We love to accommodate them with food, water and nesting boxes made by Nathan.
Up until a few months ago we had never seen a squirrel in our garden.
Watching the cheeky little squirrel and his daring acrobatic display to munch on the bird seeds was very sweet. We thought he was adorable and wanted to make him a proper little place where he could feed and rest from the elements. Nathan being the clever craftsman he is, found some easy instructions for a DIY squirrel house. Nathan is a fast worker so I didn't manage to to take any photos of the construction. He made the squirrel house in under an hour from scraps of wood we had lying around from previous projects. He highly recommends the DIY if you want to give it a go yourself!
A few days after construction, I saw Squirrel Nutkins climb into the house and gingerly creep into the glass jar and eat the seeds.
And then the little cutie was off!
The seeds have depleted so we are pretty sure that Mr Nutkins has been back and perhaps some of his friends have popped by for a snack too?
