Red Squirrel!

Red Squirrel!

Can you tell I'm excited?! Yes, we saw red squirrels today. Well, one red squirrel, lots of times. This was at the Kirroughtree Visitors Centre in the Galloway Forest Park, just up the road from our holiday cottage. What's more, it's a very short walk from the car park along flat surface making it easy for someone who limited mobility (as I have, thanks ME) or who is a wheelchair user. And you can sit down at the hide, as I did, and get pretty darned close to red squirrels without getting too tired (except from excitement).

Red Squirrels! I'm not sure I can really say anything sensible, as I'm so excited that I saw a RED SQUIRREL. So I'll let the video above and pictures below do the talking.

Well hello...

Here I'm doing a cute thing with my paws

Digging down to hide my nuts

You can't see me hiding my nuts, right?

I think I look rather fetching against the green

 Here I'm being PDC (pretty darned cute)

More PDC

Sniffing about for more nuts. I hope the birds haven't nicked them all.
