Lucky man Dave, a rare sight indeed to see a red squirrel, not only in Wigan but around the country. Well done.

What a superb picture. Congratulations. The people who say that photography is not an art are stupid.

I go to Beacon Country Park most days with my dog and the park rangers say they have seen a few reds up there. I haven't been lucky enough to see one yet though.
Great photo by the way.


Comment by Harry C. on 3rd May 2010 at 18:56
Thanks for the info Dave, I'll Try to get there and see. There are some Reds in Mossbank Park Bolton in a large enclosure, and a colony at Formby Point near Southport.
Cheers H.

Thanks for the photo. I like many despair at the plight of the reds.
Smashing shot. Hope this is the first of many in this region.
