    Just back from an extremely wet weekend camping at the Beer and Music Festival in Dent. Luckily my tent survived but lots didn't. Stopped off at a spot on the way home for red squirrels. Got nailed by the midges. Could only stay there very briefly. When I got in the car I saw how badly bitten my face was! Started to look like the elephant man!

    Anyway managed to get this shot of one running towards me!
