Clever Squirrels

I walked along Cooks Cross on Wednesday to take Max (the dog) to the vets to be weighed – he was 8.3 kg when he arrived from Spain in mid-December and  now weighs 18.1 kg!

Anyway, walking back along Cooks Cross the dog chased a squirrel up a tree. As I carried on walking I noticed a shadow flitting along the pavement. I looked up, and there was the squirrel using a power line as an aerial walkway to the next tree – a distance of about 50 yards!

Later a met a lady who lives in Canada but comes to see her mother, who’s in Eastleigh,  for a couple of weeks most years. She said that the squirrels near her home in Toronto use the power lines to cross the road!
