Today, as I was on my way into town with my friends, just up the road from where i live, on the old bog road, coming down the road towards us was what we at first took to be a stoat but turned out to be a young red squirrel when we were close enough to see it clearly. It is now several years since I saw one as near to our house as this one was. There used to be a couple which came regularly to the garden. I hope to see it again.
