Help, help, they're going for his nuts!

I mentioned in a comment an entry or two back that we'd recently noticed quite how many squirrels inhabit one of our local park. I like squirrels (unlike, say, anubisgrrl), so today while out shopping we acquired some peanuts and wandered off to the park to feed them.

It's amazing how popular one can become among the local wildlife when you have an open packet of food. We spent a few minutes happily feeding squirrels... and then the local Pigeon Posse noticed us. Unfortunately the photo of a squirrel seeing off a pigeon was a bit too blurred, but here are some others. Sadly rotwang wouldn't let me put up the one of a pigeon cooing sweet nothings into his ear (before attempting to eat the ear concerned).

SPX progress: phase 3 complete and only revealing some minor tweaks to be done to the output from phases 1 & 2. I hope to be able to initiate phase 4 tomorrow.
