Is this a red squirrel? It is not. It is a grey squirrel, though its head is almost red, and part of the fur on its sides is quite red. There are lots of grey squirrels around the house but there is not a single red squirrel in Cornwall, I think. Grey squirrels are successful but beautiful red squirrels are rare/scarce.
