Squirrels are always scampering along the railings around the castle area on the look-out for their next meal from us humans. I can remember feeding them as a child, and it is still a favourite pastime with families who visit the Sportsground and the castle area.
Squirrels love munching on unroasted peanuts (with or without shell), and I believe pet shops sell a suitable munching mix for them. But remember to be careful, as they have very sharp teeth and nails, so keep a fair distance to avoid bites and cuts. If you do get a small squirrel injury it’s best to have it checked out.
