Red Mist

Autumn comes with mist and the dying year has a blaze of colour. You even have a red squirrel there by the look of it. I've never seen one of those here, though I did see a pine martin jump into a tree on dartmoor once. It surprised the hell out of me.

Hi john,

there's a few red squirrels, in the parks in the city, one ran past me only a couple of yards away the other day.

Certainly the trees are ablaze with leftover summer.

Its pretty warm here too


cheers

Hi penny

they do make an interesting noise, but rarely I hear it.

Are there many reds where u are?

cheers

Hey Aferris

Yes, there are lots of red squirrels where I live

They make that weird rattling noise
And squeaky sounds
And they burrow rather then nest in trees like the grey/black squirrels do

Just recently: There was a little young red squirrel alongside one of the bike trails I use

tucked under his tail, seemed quite disoriented or something

I got off my bike and he/she left, but, didn't scurry just sort of wandered off the path

Not to much I could do for it, but, hope it was ok

they are super cute

They're great to watch. This one is in the middle of the city, which is encouraging.

cheers
