MAIDSTONE, England, March 28 (UPI) -- A hungry squirrel in England was caught on camera braving powerful storm winds to get his breakfast from a backyard feeder.

A video posted to YouTube by user It's Squirrel shows the squirrel in Kent, England, braving visibly powerful winds to climb across the top of a fence and raid the contents of a resident's backyard feeder.

The squirrel's tail lashes back and forth by the wind as it clings to the top of the fence and hangs upside-down from the feeder.

The animal climbs from the fence to the feeder multiple times as the winds threaten to rip it free of its footing.

The squirrel eventually satisfies its hunger and runs off, presumably to find shelter from the severe weather.
