G Unit

They’re elusive, the lesser spotted ‘G’ person.  

We have two that have made a home in our yard.. I call them the G unit… they’re to be found darting in and out of timber stacks…  sometimes sunning themselves at the lower end of air yard dried yard… but very rarely in one place for very long… they’re certainly hard to photograph and they cover their tracks very well.

I tried tempting them out into the open with some cake on Friday…  this one retreated almost as soon as he’d taken the nice juicy slice of coffee and walnut cake…

I find cake does bring them running but they’re gone just as quickly..  I’m not sure what else would coax them away from the waney edge sticking logs…

This one scuttled off before I could get a good picture of his face… 

I think he’s the older of the two as he seems to be the one leading the way…  but it’s not always easy to tell as they tend to work in synch and they’re fast so it’s not always possible to tell where one ends and the other begins… !

If you see any G’s , in our yard or out and about in the Sussex countryside (we know they roam) stop and get a photograph…  we’d love to see them in their natural habitat. For more news on the native wildlife species…  or even native wood species.. visit our website http://new.englishwoodlandstimber.co.uk/  or come and see us.. and if you come on Friday afternoons bring cake!

    I have seen the older *G* in the bottom of our garden, easily coaxed with a good moist rich friut cake and a saucer of tea, I think that you will find that the younger one is attracted to chocolate cake.

    Happy Hunting!

      Oh Judy, I knew he’d turn up at the bottom of somebodies garden… I hope you’ve got netting over your vegetables! I think we’re long overdue a chocolate cake so we’ll see what happens with the younger one. He may bite my hand off!
