RED SQUIRRELS

How many squirrels can you see?

A local photographer heard about the red squirrels at Hiddenglen and, being within five miles, where better to while away the hours of lockdown than in a forest! Kenny set up a hide, several feeders and a jump. The squirrels were quick to find the food and tell their mates. Last Sunday morning there were seven squirrels foraging. A great spotted woodpecker is often present, and the dozens of tits have caught the eye of a sparrow hawk who does a regular flypast. At night one can hear the repetitive bang of the nut feeder lid when the pine martin is feeding – sometimes for up to 40 minutes. We are now thinking of building a more permanent hide so guests can be sheltered behind one way glass.
