Everyone loves a Red Squirrel, but to most the Grey is the baddie who drove out the Reds. But, as the author explains, things were not that simple: the numbers of Reds declined drastically in Britain between 1900 and 1925, which was well before Grey Squirrels became established. In fact, contrary to conventional wisdom, if Greys and Reds inhabit the same wood, they will even share the same dreys.
All information about squirrels is given, their physical differences, their food preferences, whether they hibernate, how they communicate, squirrels in your garden. Information about Red squirrel sanctuaries and the efforts to conserve them are also included. 127 pages.
