SZ5885 : Female Squirrel

taken 7 years ago, near to Alverstone, Isle of Wight, Great Britain

Female Squirrel
Female Squirrel
Seen at the Alverstone Mead Nature Reserve. This red squirrel appears to be pregnant again.

Three squirrels were pregnant in the early spring, but no kittens have been seen by regular visitors. This leads me to conclude that they did not survive the extremely wet conditions in April. Red squirrels have a high 'infant' mortality rate, and approximately 85% fail to see their first Birthday.
