This wall seems to be part of a lovely playground for the red squirrels.
This baby always seemed to be the first up the wall in the morning. I decided to call him 'Oxley!'
Oxley clutches his chest as he surveys his adventure playground.
As I continue observing Oxley investigating his new playground, I am impressed by how he prepares to make a leap.
His ear tufts are blown back as he prepares for lift off.

He would spend a lot of time perfecting the angle he jumped from.
Midweek I noticed Oxley had a little sister with him. I decided to call her 'Skiddaw.'
Skiddaw has fewer ear tufts and is far more cautious than Oxley.
She uses the same branch as Oxley but creeps further along before launching.

Capturing Oxley and Skiddaw in the air was a new venture for me. Watching them happily play chase was wonderful. The chasing was fast,and very vocal. At some point they would end up eating quietly at a safe distance apart on the boundary wall.
