Squirrel Watch

From now rain or shine, or until I get lazy or forget, I am going to conduct a rigorous scientific experiment with the squirrels of Bute Park both to and from work each week day...

As I will be taking the same route it should be a consistent basis to draw results from.

So far we have 9 squirrels seen on the way home yesterday from about 5:05pm, and this morning from about 9:45am I only saw 3.

This early on in the experiment I can already deduce that most squirrels are lazy fuckers who don't like getting up in the morning...

My conclusion is that you're tired and bleary eyed and not paying attention in the mornings.

My conclusion is that the schmartje squirrels are avoiding you.

They're the ones which are too stupid to invisible-ify themselves.

My conclusion is that those ain't squrrels (because they are not invisble).

Also too stupid not to still be asleep.

I am detecting a pattern here, this is groundbreaking seriously serious stuff!

The squirrels that aren't there are obviously in their ship somewhere over North America planning to mutilate farm animals and making crop circles, and maybe even doing some of it.

They're usually back in the UK by tea time.

Only 4 yesterday heading back, however it was raining so that is another parameter to factor in.

This morning there were only 2!!!

One of you hasn't tipped them off and they're hiding from me...?

Very suspicious!

OK, there were six on the way home - but this morning it was drizzling quite heavily and there wasn't a single one!

So today I made an amazing discovery that squirrels don't like the rain!

Alternative conclusion: rain makes visibility poorer so MOBIUS didn't spot any squirrels.

Update!!!

Funko and Tizzy were privy to some very important information when they were down here in Cardiff that I was too lazy to post on CG...

After a very quiet Summer of seeing maybe one or two squirrels a day which wasn't really worth reporting, there has recently in the last month or so been a veritable explosion of squirrel numbers...

This is not a phenomenon isolated to the city's main park, but also the smaller parks across busy roads and even individual trees relatively far away as they spread their squirrelly influence!

Which draws me to the obvious conclusion - the squirrels are taking over Cardiff!!!
