This is Mrs Murgatroyd’s 2010 baby, unnamed until last night when I realised that I had only ever seen it gripping the tree, facing uphill and clinging tight. Tonight was the first time I had seen it face to face. Like all the babies, it’s cute, pretty and with just a tiny orange tinge.
Of course, once it leaves its mother, I won’t be able to recognise it from all the others … but for now it’s The Gripper!
