Red Squirrels

I just came across this image of baby squirrels on the Yahoo home page.

Aren't they adorable?!


The Sky news article says the poor babies were a victim of Hurricane Katia and were knocked out of their nest by the high winds in Northumberland.  A passer-by found them and took them to a vet's surgery who passed them onto Sanctuary Wildlife Care Centre in Morpeth.  The mother squirrel was nowhere to be found.

The beautiful russet red colour of these sweet creatures reminded me that autumn is officially here.  Before we know it it'll be Christmas and I'm definitely not ready for that!
