    Lovely. We had one a couple of years back but never seen any since. I didn't know what it was (at the time) and had to look it up. Quite exotic in looks as they are pink.

    I love them, we occasionally get them in our garden, they chatter to each other in groups and build amazing nests like grassy pom poms

    We get them in our garden too :)

    I always think they look like little chipmunks dashing about.

    Beautiful picture @old-mo ! Interesting about the raspberries too.
    Love LTT's. We tend to get just one comes into the garden to suss out food, security etc, then it shouts VERY LOUDLY and the rest of the gang appears - generally about 13-15 - they do a circuit of the shrubs around the garden and end up in the crab-apple tree. Haven't seen any this year yet, and not very often last year come to think of it. Wonder why?
    Oh I know - we were away about 6 months in total in the moho!!!

    I like @Janine 's chipmunk thing.
    They always remind me of these (but in pink & grey of course):
