Red squirrels seen every day for three days.

Here is the Lake District we love our red squirrels. We've seen red squirrels every day for the last three days on our daily walks from White Moss House. They've been frolicking about in the trees. I saw one rolling over and  jumping around on a branch, seemingly just having fun.

There are lots of hazelnuts now, so maybe they are storing their food supplies for winter. If you've only ever seen grey squirrels, ( big ugly things to my mind) you might be surpiresed by how small, pretty and dainty the reds are. Beatrix Potter loved Squirrel Nutkin, and as you probably know, she lived just 8 miles away from us here at White Moss House.

I'm delighted to hear from our guests that they've been reading all my Guides to the Lake District, and have printed out my guide to White Moss Walks. Today they are doing "walk 5" the walk round Rydal Water.The sun's come out at last after all the wind and rain, and it's just lovely here. We're pretty busy right now, but we do have a room for a one night stay this Saturday, 17 September, so if you can get away, take a look at our website for our best offers.
