The Comberton Lumberjack

THE COMBERTON LUMBERJACK – I watched sadly as a beautiful fur tree was cut down branch-by-branch. The devastation of branches falling was compounded by the squirrel drey which was nestling near the summit. As the blades of the chain saw edged nearer and nearer suddenly a grey squirrel flung itself from the branches and landed precariously on some flimsy hedge branches about 20 feet below. How was that for displacement!! I do hope it finds another home, although day by day mature trees are being felled in Comberton and soon we will be a village of nothing but house roofs, rather than interspersal of tree-tops. Tragic. I put some of the photographs together in a little film. The squirrel jumped too quickly for my camera to snap him, so I have added one of my other squirrel-leap pictures to help illustrate the drama. Watch carefully in the second picture.
