Red squirrels on the island of Anglesey move into town gardens

Conservation efforts to return red squirrels to the island of Angelsey off the north west coast of Wales have gone so well that red squirrels are now being seen in people’s gardens. Over the past 15 years, conservation work has involved removing alien grey squirrels and reintroducing red squirrels to boost the dwindling population. Now there may be more than 500 red squirrels on the island; there were only about 40 when the conservation work began in 1997. Also see the Holyhead & Anglesy Mail.
