Warning: may contain nuts

By TrevBatWCC    
Back in late January 2013 had a 5 day coach holiday in Warwickshire as I'd fancied visiting Stratford-upon-Avon. The hotel was located in the village of Charlecote, and it was a good base for all our outings, including as well as Stratford-upon-Avon, a tour of Cotswold villages, Warwick, and finally here at Royal Leamington Spa, which was on the way back home on 1st February and where we had a couple of hours to explore. The coach parked up alongside the lovely Jephson Gardens, where there were lots of grey squirrels about. They certainly weren't shy, and ones on the ground came right up to your feet! This chap on a tree was just a couple of metres away from where I was standing and kindly posed for me.

Two great shots, Trev.

Bad squirrel and nuts jokes..
Why don’t squirrels have any friends?
Because they drive everyone nuts.

What do you get if you cross a squirrel with an elephant?
An animal that remembers where it hid its nuts.

Where do squirrels go when they have a nervous breakdown?
To the nut-house.

What do you call a squirrel with no nuts?
A female squirrel.

I did say they were bad...Blush
