Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)

Just because I adore them and to provide a link to find out more about how to aid their conservation…

  2. You have Red Squirrels in Norfolk? It's a great shot, what is he holding?

  3. Hi Toffeeapple. No, it's a captive specimen. The shot was taken through chicken wire-type fencing and it the background you can see the wooden planks of the enclosure. Oh and I think it's cucumber of courgette. – Tim
