Just bought a very small camcorder for an upcoming trip where light weight is the name of the game.
Just unpacking it in the kitchen, when out the window there appeared a visitor we have not seen for about 10 years. A Red Squirrel.
Hoping there was enough oomph in the battery supppied, I quickly grabbed some shots out the window.
Bunged the SDHC Card into my laptop, grabbed a still off it and here it is.
For those of you who haven't seen a Red before - here he is...
Since then we appear now to have 3 red squirrels here (amongst the 5 greys) which is the first time in over 10 years in this locality. Great news indeed as this is our own native Scottish Red Squirrel and they are really quite rare to see.
I always thought the Greys were quick but they are SLOW in comparison to this wee guy....Needless to say I've taken lots of shots since.
