The Squirrel Pose

Higher resolution copy here:


Seen at the Alverstone Mead Nature Reserve. This little lady was happy to pose, whilst eating a hazlenut.


Having visited Alverstone Mead, on four occasions during Nov/Dec 2011, a summary of my sightings might be of interest. The squirrels come in a variety of colours:


Black-tail (with matching black ear-tufts)


Brown (as above)


In total, I have identified 10 individual squirrels:


3 black-tail (1 male, 2 female)

3 orange (0 male, 3 female) including 1 juvenile

4 brown (3 male, 1 female) including 1 juvenile male


The males are fairly easy to identify. Those which I have not identified as male, I have classified as female.
