Squirrel Wellykins

In October Joyce Williams was tidying her allotment and shed ready for the winter and decided to remove her old Wellies and replace them with a better pair from home.

She picked the old ones up in the shed, one was heavier than the other and rattled. Wondering what animal she had caught in her boot she carefully tipped it upside down and out fell a pile of nuts.

A Squirrel had been storing its winter food in one Welly and probably decided to hibernate in the other.

She left the nuts in a pile on the floor next to the new Wellies. She went back two days later to check on the nuts. Alas the nuts had all disappeared. After a search in the shed she could not find any trace of them.

The Squirrel had moved house.
