Kielder Red Squirrels

Red Squirrel


We took advantage of a trip to Yorkshire for my sister's wedding to continue further North for a few days to Kielder in Northumberland.

I have always wanted to see red squirrels in the wild but they are much more of a challenge to photograph than the non-native grey squirrels which will literally walk up your leg for food! Two days visiting hides and being bitten badly by midges (despite using insect repellant) and we finally came up trumps. We saw not one but three red squirrels feeding at Leaplish in Kielder! Here's a couple of 'hot shots'...
