My neighbour, who is a biologist told me that squirrels have had a hard time the last winters here in urban southern germany and that she doesn’t think the situation will improve much this year. Seems the little critters are so excited about the long and hot summer that they simply forget to collect their nuts as supply for the winter. So I made a “squirrel-nut-depot-all-you-can-eat-bar”.
As it is usual for me, it’s made from mainly scrap that was lying around (in this case a remnant board from a dismantled pallet, about one meter long and 14 cm wide). It’s an absolutely simple construction that I’ve combined from several instructions from the web (see images) and it’s easily done in one afternoon.
I hope it helps those cute little squirrels and I’ll monitor, if they’ll accept it.
