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.

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.
