The local squirrels here in South-west France are all red - no greys here! I have seen one or two when I have been out cycling (indeed I have nearly run over one or two on my bike, which would be an interesting addition to my list of animals hit, to go with the hare I hit a few years ago)
So it is with some delight that we were able to watch a red squirrel in our garden today. It stayed for maybe 45 minutes and had a good root round in a number of places including the bird feeders.
Very nice to see.
