A friend in Kinross-shire, Scotland, kindly forwarded to us some photos for the Armchair Naturalist FFON website. We encouraged him to do so when he told us that he has red (not grey) squirrels in his garden.

On hearing that, John (Cooper) wryly remarked:

We Sassenachs envy you your red squirrels!”

Our correspondent was not able to send us current photographs because a rat appeared in his garden and he had to halt feeding wild birds for a while. He did, however, kindly sent some “historic photos”, including a few when there was still snow on the ground, some of which we reproduce here on the Armchair Naturalist FFON website.  

Most were taken from his home, sometimes from a distance.
