It’s me, Briar.
A little while ago Jane wrote a post about me and squirrels and the squirrel tree in the park. She got nearly everything right, and the bits she got wrong I can’t tell you. I can’t give away doggy trade secrets!
But I have a problem. I can’t get to the squirrel tree.
Look! It’s been fenced off!
A big branch came down in the wind and tree surgeons had to come and cut it off properly and take it away. They have done a very good job, but the tree is still fenced off and I can’t see the squirrels.
The wind wasn’t that strong, so Jane and I are very worried that the branch coming down is a sign that the tree is diseased and we might lose it. It is a lovely tree. Where would the squirrels go? How would I find them?
I had to sit in the middle of the park to keep an eye on things.
I didn’t see any squirrels at all, and I had to resort to stalking blackbirds. It wasn’t the same at all!
Please keep your fingers crossed for my tree and my squirrels.
