Red Squirrels

I recently had the pleasure of photographing red squirrels at a private sanctuary near Dundee, Scotland.  Currently, owing to the rapid spread of the grey squirrel, only 120,000 red squirrels remain in Scotland.  This is the reason why the Scottish Wildlife Trust is attempting to prevent the grey moving northwards in order to save the red from the real threat of extinction.  Having seen the red at close quarters this would indeed be a tragedy.
