‘It was really funny to watch because he had eaten so much he really struggled to get out of the hole he had made to get in.
‘It took him a few minutes to actually get out of the bin, I even had time to grab my camera.
‘When I looked into the bin afterwards it was half full I couldn’t believe it.
‘I was amazed at the lengths he went to.’ said Roy, 67, who lives in Wigan Greater Manchester.
Roy has now put a tin lid on his bird seed to tub to prevent any further squirrel antics.
‘I couldn’t believe the size of the hole.’ He added.
