Return of the Red Squirel

We have had great news this week in that red squirrels are returning to the Lake District. The Westmorland Gazette reports that work being done by conservationists such as the Westmorland Red Squirrel Society is helping the fight back against the rival grey squirrel. Signs of recovery have been seen at Skellghyll Woods near Ambleside and Betty Fold at Hawkshead Hill. More information can be found at www.westmorlandred-squirrels.org.uk
