Red Squirrel playing in the snow

It has been a long time since I have photographed my favourite wee red squirrels, let alone in the snow.  I have worked hard on establishing a new woodland site over the past year.  This site was chosen for the abundance of natural light to work with throughout the day and in the autumn time there is a sea of heather.  The key species are now established and regularly come into the site. The red squirrel, great spotted woodpecker and the crested tit.

There has not been an abundance of snow at lower levels this winter, so when a good covering did come, I knew exactly where I wanted to be and thankfully I was blessed with some gorgeous winter light.
