A (or the) Grey Squirrel has been quite regular, not only raiding the bird table but generally scurrying around the garden.

It has taking the habit of scrambling onto the roof if it's disturbed instead of leaving all together.

Today I went to the coast of the outside chance that a reported Lesser Kestrel was going to be around at Marsden. Of course it wasn't but I took the opportunity of heading a couple of miles south to a garden in Seaburn where a Bee-eater has been present for a couple of days. Instead of either being in Africa or at least well on it's way, its feed on wasps still around in gardens in Sunderland.

Like the garden Squirrel it was also using the rooftops to view it's surroundings.
I know which I would prefer on my roof.
