A new, full-colour study of red squirrels in Forest How, Eskdale

Photographer Peter Trimming undertook a three-year study of red squirrels from 2012-2015 

In this new, full-colour hardback book, squirrel enthusiast and photographer Peter Trimming documents a small colony of wild native red squirrels over a three-year period. His research is based in the Forest How, which is situated in Eskdale, Cumbria. During his research, Peter witnesses a devastating outbreak of squirrel pox. This resulted in the loss of the entire adult population of the colony.

Despite this, a few of the younger squirrels, born in the spring of 2014, survive and begin to rebuild the colony. They emerge in guesthouse gardens from the late summer of 2014.  Amongst these young squirrels is a female named ‘Belinda’, who Peter starts to watch more closely.

His charming book not only contains intimate details about this colony but multiple full-colour photos of his adorable subjects, in amazing detail. It has been introduced by Helen Butler MBE, of the Wight Squirrel Project and the IOW Red Squirrel Trust.
