Red Squirrels in Wensleydale

We all love our native red squirrel and therefore are pleased to read about the Wensleydale Red Squirrel Group which was founded in January 2013 with the aim of re-establishing a strong Red Squirrel population within upper Wensleydale and the adjoining Dales (initally between Hawes and Bainbridge) .  Do let us know if you have sightings of any red squirrels whilst on your travels.  You can learn more about this exciting project on the Wensleydale Red Squirrel Group’s website www.wensleydalersg.co.uk .

There are other similar groups: in Cumbria there is the Westmorland Red Squirrel Society www.westmorlandredsquirrels.org.uk and Northern Red Squirrels which covers many parts of the country including, for example, Sedbergh www.northernredsquirrels.org.uk
