Red Squirrel Update

At least three families of red squirrels have made their home in the playgrounds and and sheltered gardens at Mirehouse.   The lakeside walk through woods and parkland with the mixed deciduous/conifer woodland provides a fantastic location for the red squirrels.

Our red squirrels are cared for by Fran Foster of North Lakes Squirrel Rangers, who works closely with conservation groups, farmers and volunteers.  Follow developments on Facebook - North Lakes Red Squirrel Ranger and support the project by enjoying a chocolate and shortbread squirrel biscuit from The Old Sawmill Tearoom!
