Red squirrel talk

Katy Cook, engaging communities officer with Red Squirrels Northern England at Northumberland Wildlife Trust, will talk about the challenges red squirrels face in the area.

She is doing a talk in the Jubilee Hall, Rothbury, on July 18 at 7.30pm in conjuction with the local volunteer group, Upper Wansbeck and Coquetdale Red Squirrel Group.

There is currently more work being done than ever before to remove grey squirrels in areas important for reds and the volunteers need more help.

The group has recently completed the largest ever survey of red squirrel distribution and the results will be available at the meeting.
