Squirrel Sightings

Across the National Park, the Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels (SSRS) project has been proactively monitoring squirrel populations since 2009, both to celebrate red squirrels reappearing in new areas and to carefully assess grey squirrel movements. In light of the current pandemic all SSRS surveys have been suspended and so the only way to continue monitoring squirrel populations at this time is for people to let them know if they have seen a squirrel locally, either in their garden or on their daily exercise. They welcome sightings from anywhere in Scotland of both red and grey squirrels, so please spread the word and encourage others to report their sightings at https://scottishsquirrels.org.uk<https://scottishsquirrels.org.uk/
