Portrait of the grey squirrel as thief
Presented by Jessica Holm
Tight-rope walking along washing lines. Scaling walls seven stories high. Abseiling down wires, and jumping prodigious distances. It seems there is nothing that grey squirrels will not do to steal from garden bird feeders!
But whether you love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying they are highly successful - both as wild animals, and as urban thieves.
Jessica Holm looks at how cleverly grey squirrels have taken up the challenge of sharing our gardens and stealing food from us.
