Red squirrel update

No red squirrels have been seen at Wallington in the past two weeks.  This may be due in part to a surfeit of natural food but it is probably also related to an invasion of American greys, as was seen a few years ago.  The feeders near the hide have been removed but control of the greys is difficult at this time of year.  With luck the reds are hiding out in the woods and will re-emerge when things improve.  To keep us all optimistic here are a few photos from earlier.
