Had a great day yesterday photographing Red Squirrels. This is the first time I have had a chance to photograph them in this country. They are very cute but very fast. Much quicker than the Grey Squirrel. Red squirrels are fast enough to evade capture by Pine Martins so part of the reason for the grey squirrel ousting the red is that we lost our Pine Martins. Pine Martins have been seen in the New Forest National Park again so if they flourish maybe we could have the Red Squirrel return again someday.
I’m sure people will ask me so I have added these images for sale in my Wildlife Gallery where you can find options for framed prints, canvasses and acrylics. Click Here.
