Nice shots. Are those peanuts safe for squirrels?
The wouldn't be for birds.... The bird safe ones are
treated to remove any poisons.

EDIT:

Not safe see here....(bottom of page)

This wasn't one of mine. Hazelnuts in shells are my preferred squirrel food.

I've left a comment on the blog of the group who are helping them

I don't think the odd one will matter, but they don't
want to be feeding them continually

Always miffed when I see Red Squirrels as I would need to travel a considerable distance to see one!

Good work on the birds, definately good to see something different, one of my aims this year!
