27 December 2014: Red Squirrel in Co Durham

While having a week back up North for Christmas with my father, our son and his new wife, we stayed at a holiday cottage near the the Derwent Reservoir in County Durham. Just along the road was a small colony of Red Squirrels.
A Robin - well it was just after Christmas.
The first and only Red Squirrel to show today.

Great Tit checking where the camera had gone.
Great Tit, they are obviously so used to humans that they just flutter past your ears an then check out what you are up to.
Red Squirrel again
Never seen so many Coal Tits in one place

A quick 10 minute trip up the road took me to moorland and some Red Grouse - could have done with some sunshine, but I'm happy enough.
