Red Squirrel (Killhope)

I recorded this video during a visit to Killhope Lead Mining Museum in the North Pennines. The woods there are a stronghold for the species. Despite the snow coming down, another Red Squirrel turned up after I shot this and the pair began a mating chase. Seems Red Squirrel kittens may not be far away!
