3. Feed your Reds

The Group supports supplementary feeding of red squirrels provided it is continuous, does not encourage them to cross busy roads or to encounter cats.

  • Apart from the pleasure you will get from watching them you will also help them survive and thrive.
  • A fit squirrel can often have more than one litter in a year therefore helping the population to grow and prosper.
  • Please remember that, like us, they need a balanced diet not just peanuts.
