A beautiful capture Ed. The fork in the tree making for a wonderful natural framing whilst the background is uncluttered allowing one to fully enjoy the wonderfully illuminated detail and colour of the Squirrel

So you have public hides? Great thing that. Still haven't gotta proper hide. French army camo nets aren't that good ... But better than nothing.

Yes we have a good number locally although some are used for unsavoury acts like dogging and cottaging. The car parks at the RSPB reserve Highnam Woods have had to be locked because of this!Sad
