Nature Notes,  Victor's Wonderful Wildlife


Very recently I have been seeing a few squirrel families around the churchyard, (I even saw a baby one!). I decided to put some nuts out for them and set the wildlife camera up to see what would happen. The next day I saw that the squirrels had eaten the nuts and that the camera had recorded them.

Here are some facts about squirrels. There are 2.5 million grey squirrels and 140,000 red squirrels. Red squirrels have been around for 10,000 years in the UK. Grey squirrels have been in the UK since the Victorians. Did you know that when the church was built no grey squirrels would have been around!
