Squirrels in Brandon Hill Park


The squirrels in Brandon Hill Park are alarmingly friendly with ears constantly pricked up for the rustle of a packet of monkey nuts. You can whistle at them and open the packet and see 2 or 3 of them running straight at you.

They’re alarmingly unafraid and will happily eat out of your hands if you’re still enough. Some of them will climb trouser legs if they think there are peanuts at the top.
