Worth Waiting For

I spent a day at Eskrigg Nature Reserve Lockerbie hoping to photograph some red squirrels. After three and half hours I thought that my luck was out when I spotted this little chap foraging in the distant grass. I had placed hazelnuts on some tree stumps nearby me (the nature reserve allows photographers to do this) and eventually he worked his way over and took some of them. He stayed about ten minutes before scurrying up a tree and disappearing. The reserve is looked after by Lockerbie Wildlife Trust
