Not in our garden, but Kirsty took these during a Rock Pipit ringing session near the Mull of Galloway

One of the beautiful Red Squirrels that visit our garden
Burying nuts in the lawn, sadly this one with the dark tail was run over and killed on our road at the end of November, we watched in horror from the window.
This one gets right inside the feeder
Dead rat on the lawn!
Blur of a Stoat!
