Darting along branches or dashing between trees in parts of Scotland, the Isle of Wight, Anglesey, Brownsea Island and a few areas in Northumberland and the Lake District, the rarely spotted beautiful red squirrel is a beautiful and rare creature that owes its decline to the much more common grey squirrel.
