Andy M grew some sunflowers in his garden this year, leaving the largest of them in the ground intending that the Goldfinch might benefit from the seed during the autumn - or so he thought! The Goldfinch, it turns out, prefer the 'ready to eat' takeaway seed from the bird feeders!
However, a Grey Squirrel spotted the opportunity and moved in.
It seems the technique was to hang upside down to chew off chunks of sunflower head, then revert to upright to eat! - and repeat! The sunflower head seemingly put up something of a fight at one stage, and things got quite violent - but by the end the squirrel was full, and the sunflower was a tattered mess!
