Red squirrel / Scoiattolo rosso

May 19, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

When I had the very nice surprise of the badger last day, also a red squirrel had peeked out but a couple of days after it didn't shopw up and as there was also a short video of a cat passing through, I was worried that the squirrel could have been its prey. Instead yesterday the red wee thing was recorded in the camera trap even if it was too far away so I'm posting its video of last week.

Not only in UK but also here in Italy it was argued if grey squirrels should be culled to protect red ones so I'm particularly happy that here there is a red squirrel which didn't ask for any culling and which I hadn't seen in my area since a very long time! /

Quando ho avuto la bella sorpresa del tasso l'altro giorno, anche uno scoiattolo rosso aveva fatto capolino ma poi era sparito dopo un paio di giorni e visto che anche un gatto era passato in zona, ero preoccupata che lo scoiattolo rosso fosse diventato una sua preda. Invece ieri il piccoletto rosso è stato ripreso dalla fototrappola, anche se è passato troppo lontano quindi ho pensato di postare il video della scorsa settimana.

Non solo nel Regno Unito ma anche qui in Italia si è discusso se sarebbe giusto abbattere gli scoiattoli grigi per proteggere quelli rossi quindi sono particoarmente felice che qui ci sia uno scoiattolo rosso che non ha richiesto nessun abbattimento e che io non avevo visto in zona da moltissimo tempo.
