  1. A bit bigger than the ones I photographed! Imagine the damage ones that size could cause. There's a reason they are so small.

  4. Oh wow that is wonderful! I love squirrels Ann and always hoped to see a red squirrel. We went to Newborough on Anglesey when the reds were almost extinct (we didn't see one) and after almost 20 years thy are thriving and the greys are extinct there now. A bit of a double edged sword I think, but the reds and greys can't live side by side. Lovely photo.

    1. I'm glad the reds are back in Anglesey. The Isle of Wight have them, but we didn't see any last time we went there. We did see reds up in Scotland years and years ago. I watched a mother squirrel leave her baby on a branch, she went off but when she came back the baby had 'moved' from where she had left it, and she literally told it off! really had a go at it.

  5. If the red squirrels are that big, imagine the size of the grey ones!
    No reds near where I love, plenty of grey and black ones (known as treerats), but reds are often seen a few miles north of here, further away from people and civilization.

    1. We call them treerats too, seems a shame really, because I really like them. Although I'm from the New Forest originally, and they're known as Skudgies, and that's what I always think of them as.
