ANNE Robertson, who lives at Blackcraig was amused at the antics of a mum and baby squirrel recently.

The squirrels were looking for somewhere warm, dry and out of wind on Sunday afternoon.

They found the squirrel feeder was an ideal room with a view, meals included.

Mum and baby squirrel squeezed in together but when Anne took a photograph Mum jumped out of the box leaving baby squirrel behind.

Anne said: “The second picture (shown right) shows the baby squirrel happily munching away.

“But there was a big problem, the pair of them ate so many nuts that baby squirrel could not reach the lid of the box to get out so we had to let him out!”
