Explore the reasons for red squirrel decline in this visit to Kielder forest.
Since the introduction of the grey squirrel in 1876 the population of native reds has crashed to below 140,000 (vs 2.5m greys). This session explores reasons for the decline and the ways reds are fighting back. There is also an opportunity to squirrel-watch in Kielder – a red squirrel stronghold.
