About this book

Peter Trimming documents a small colony of wild native red squirrels from autumn 2012 to summer 2015. His research is based at Forest How, which is situated in Eskdale, Cumbria. During his research, Peter witnesses a devastating outbreak of squirrel pox. This results in the loss of the entire adult population of the colony.

Despite this, a few of the younger squirrels, born in the spring of 2014, survive and begin to rebuild the colony. They emerge in guesthouse gardens from the late summer of 2014. Amongst these young squirrels is a female named Belinda, who Peter starts to watch more closely.

This charming book about wildlife conservation not only contains intimate details about the colony but multiple full-colour photos of his adorable subjects. It will appeal to fans of wildlife and the British countryside.
