The Great Nut Heist

At the Eastern End of St James’s Park

This time I took some food.  I put down the carrier bag to take out my camera and ~

“Right, I’ll do the old squirrel up the leg routine”.

Squirrel up Leg


“You do the blag”

Squirrel in Bag


Cute Squirrel

“I’ll do the snatch.  I’m so cute the rozzers will never suspect”

Rich Squirrel

“Oh my, Oh my, Oh my. I’m rich I tell you, rich”

Squirrel on Knee

“Well now that’s all sorted out, a nice little sit down on this handy leggy thing”

St James's Park Squirrel

“Cor blimey governor, it ain’t ‘alf  a good bit of cashew this.”

Squirrel on Post

“A nice piece of walnut for me.  I say, any chance of liqueur”.

Tightrope Squirrel

“Look it’s the great Squirreldini”


“Blasted squirrels.  Any of us could do that if we wanted too”


“What, with these feet”

Squirrel by Flash

We don’t have much and life can be hard, but:-

Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

  6. I love that song. I sometimes see some grey squirrels outside my window when I’m sitting at my desk working. They’re very cute but I’d rather see the red ones.

  7. Can’t believe it took me so long to find my way here. Any friend of squirrels is a bloggy friend o’ mine 🙂 How come one never hears of pet squirrels…?

    • Glad you enjoyed. I don’t think they make very easy pets. Too quick and ingenious to be kept. 😀
