Squirrels: Facts and Guides

Grey squirrels are incredibly common throughout the UK, despite being native to North America. The bright-orange, less common red squirrel is in fact the UK’s only native squirrel species, yet has been in decline for decades. These adventurous creatures are often seen jumping from tree branches or scurrying around looking for food at speeds of up to 20 mph. 

Our wildlife guides on red and grey squirrels explore their unique diets, feeding habits and nesting behaviour. Along with useful tips on how to boost the wellbeing of squirrels in your area.
