This is a photo of the peanut feeder in the garden, the sole function of which is to provide easy access to food for any birds who happen to be flitting by looking for food. You may notice that there are a couple of plastic fastenings at the bottom to replace the original ones, which our local squirrels managed to dismantle. They have tried their best to nibble away at these but, so far, to no avail.
Not to be deterred, however, they have managed to loosen one of the metal strands, which you can see sticking out, which enables them to extract peanuts ad infinitem.
Keith thinks this is very clever.
I think it probably is clever but also extremely annoying and what is not clever is their total inability to understand that the peanuts are for the birds, not for them!
Back to the drawing board...
