Squirrel or chipmunk? Who knows.

by Darren

Of course this is a beautiful red squirrel but they way it is holding its paw right up to its mouth while nibbling away does remind me a lot of a chipmunk. As with most of the other reds that I’ve photographed this one is from the reserve at Formby. The area has suffered a devastating bout of squirrel pox and lost much of its population however the good news is that Recently there’s been an increase in their numbers.
