Red Squirrel Kittens


The first of the red squirrel kittens born in our walk through enclosure have stated to explore! They are around 7 weeks old, and beginning to stretch their legs and look outside of their drey. Over the next few days and weeks they will continue to look around and play, and even venture further from their home to see what the rest of the Copse has to offer. Growing up with the other squirrels, they will no doubt become as friendly as the others, and given time may well turn up for the talk every morning at 10.30am



As well as our walk through enclosure, we have several breeding pens off display where we house squirrels for our breeding and release programs. Along with a few litters at other sites, we have a few here too which well be part of a release later this year on to another island. More news on this when the time comes.
