The red squirrels had a good year at the reserve and we saw more of them than in the past. They are smaller than the eastern greys but what they lack in size they make up for in temperament. They often chase the larger squirrels around; are known to be feisty and very territorial. These squirrels make for fine subjects particularly in the fall when the woods wear a similar colour to their own.

Things are very different with squirrels here – the native Red has collapsed, I think from a disease carried by the American Grey, which was introduced here. We have Greys in the garden, but have to travel to a few places far off to catch a glimpse of a Red. A
