The first litter was born in the spring, and is now ready to be weaned in preparation for leaving the nest and the care of their mother. Here is a video of a family of young squirrels, on the edge of independence, trying to persuade their mother to feed them.

This continued for some time until only the sparowhawk remained. It continued to swoop down and pecked the buzzard!
