Here's a one of a Grey Seal on the back of Brownstone Island, taken in August just as they were all coming ashore to give birth. It was taken with a 200mm zoom, so it shows how close you can get without disturbing them (from a boat in case you were wondering):

Lovely Grey Seals Rob - the second one had me in stitches, look at the facial expression of the right hand seal, looks like its absolutely creased up

Found what I'm sure was a grey squirrel drey on my travels today. There was a fair amount of nut and seed shells/husks lying on the ground in the immediate area to convince me, but on closer examinationthey looked far too neat for a squirrel and looked more like the work of a wood mouse. Now I realise that there is no reason for the two species not to live side by side, but I was wondering why a wood mouse (or mice) would eat directly under a drey? Has anyone had any experience of this or any ideas?

Hi Rob

No experience of this myself but just wondered if the mouse would be feeding on the bits that the Squirrel may be dropping when its gnawing on the nuts etc.

Talking to someone today who mentioned that Wood Mice have a fantastic sense of smell and could well have raided a squirrels buried cache, hence the reason why they were under the drey. However, they also told me that Great Tits can peck a similar looking neat hole in nuts and seeds which could also explain it. I'm going to have to dig a magnifying glass out and have a closer look at the husks to see if they have been pecked or gnawed.

Hi Folks,
Recent garden visitors of the 'Mammal' type are....

Single Dog Fox & Wood Mice (x3). 'Mr Todd' visits most mornings, quite early on, and the wood mice break cover throughout the day, to clear up the sunflower hearts spilled from the bird feeders.

Cheers, Dougie
