Sciurus Carolinensis

Grey Squirrel | Botanical Gardens Sheffield 2017 | © Little Bits of Sheffield | SP1010838E

The Grey Squirrel is not a native species to the UK.  After it was introduced in the 19th Century it gradually displaced and grew to out-number native Red Squirrels.  On Little Bits of Sheffield it has for one day displaced the usual less animated content and is dedicated to Victoria over on Neo Watercolour.

The photograph was taken at the Botanical Gardens on 30 March 2017.
