I went back to the forest on my own, the Monday after our bike ride, to collect wood for making sedan chairs at cubs. There were not many people about – a few runners and dog walkers – I felt like I had it all to myself. Isn’t it beautiful? And scampering about in the trees were red squirrels. Quite a few of them but either two quick to hide behind the tree trunks or just too far away for me to photograph. They are way more fun to watch than the grey squirrels with their tufty, pointy ears and comical way they move through the trees. I hope we can spot them one day when we are all together in the woods. I would love to catch them on camera.
