Tokyo Olympics: Man builds squirrel course in Hitchin garden


A man has created an Olympic-themed squirrel obstacle course in his back garden to mark Tokyo 2020.

Steve Barley, 57, from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, spent almost three months building the course, designed around events in a heptathlon.

Two wild grey squirrels have learnt to master the obstacles to get to the nuts at the end, although they don't always use it correctly.

Mr Barley, who had previously commemorated the NHS during the Covid pandemic with a health service-themed course, said "it's all for fun".https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-58004533

What do you think of this?

I love the idea. I saw on you tube someone had made an amazing hamster course, do not know the link but it was so clever and must have taken ages to build.

I agree eyeballkerry.I think it's building on the idea that they are quite athletic and ingenious creatures anyway.I miss red squirrels.I think that the greys have seen em out of town.
