More images of the White Squirrel........................ in the Northwich Woodlands

 I returned to Marbury Country Park this morning to see if I could find the White Squirrel again.

It only took me a couple of minutes to find it.

 I must have spent an hour or so just following it around while it foraged in the undergrowth.

 So cute... don't you think?


I even managed to capture a short video clip... I hope to share that soon.

That's awesome! I've never seen a white squirrel. It's done well to have escaped predation this long!

Oh my goodness! If I knew where there was a white squirrel I would definitely want to follow it around to get such neat shots!

This was so unusual I had to do a little reading on white squirrels because I live in an area in Texas where we have huge populations of fox squirrels and I, like most others, have never seen a white one. I learned in the US they are generally either morphed or albino Eastern gray squirrels. This one appears to be a morph since it doesn't have red eyes. What a discovery. Your photos are awesome! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Very cool! I love to spot odd leucistic criters like your white squirrel. We occasionally have piebald white-tailed deer show up near me; I have yet to get a decent photo of one though.

I'm puzzled we have one in our local cemetery and one a few miles away in woodland. Quite a while ago a cemetery around 15 miles away had six! One of which was albino. Sorry if it's one in a million looks like we've won the lottery in Kent!
