Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris).

This friendly squirrel had come up to say "Hello", some half an hour earlier, sniffing at my hand and shoe; note the darker tail. Later, as I sat on one of the benches, he (or she) came back to peer at me, whilst standing on my rucksack.

Between times, I heard a crunching sound coming from foot level. Peering over the walkway, I could see the squirrel munching at something. "What have you got there?" I enquired. The squirrel climbed up to show me a hazelnut, and settled a few feet away to continue removing the shell.
