The curious squirrel...
'The squirrel had been around at the other end of our garden a couple of days, but then it discovered the bird-house -- and a potential food source -- because of all the seeds on the ground. When it came jumping, I picked up my video camera and started recording. The window was already open, and beneath it was a wooden bench from where it jumped on to the window frame and finally entered my desk.'
The Atrå resident says his son Andreas, the one seen early on holding a peanut, named the squirrel Nötteliten. Hans-Dieter Flege notes that the name is pronounced 'Nötte-leet'n' and means 'little nut eater.' Furthermore, he adds that this is the first of three squirrels who came so close to his family.
'Since I am a freelance wildlife photographer,' the elder Flege said, 'my children, my grand-children and I enjoyed these visits very much, and we hoped (the squirrel from the video) would return many more times.' He believes he may have seen Nötteliten return later with a baby in tow.
