Whinfell Forest, Penrith

Red Squirrel


Red Legged Partridge


A trip with some friends to Center Parcs in Whinfell Forest, Penrith gave me an opportunity to catch up with the Red Squirrel, a mammal that I have not seen since the early eighties. The smaller and most handsome of our two native squirrels which is now a protected species.
