Red Squirrel Absolutely beside myself today when I saw my first Red squirrels. I visited Alverstone Nature Reserve on the Isle of Wight where the squirrels have a safe haven in beautiful woodland. The staff put out food for them and this one is tucking into some hazelnuts that I had left over from Christmas!
