Locals urged to report squirrels

Red Squirrel Watch volunteers are urging people to report sightings of the native after attending Potato Day in Kelso earlier this month when gardeners told of seeing both red and non-native greys.

The group’s Elizabeth Bamford said: “A lot of people did not realise that sending in sightings is really important.” Report recent sightings to Karen Ramoo on 01750 23446 or karen@­redsquirrels.co.uk
