Annual Spring Survey
Making A Difference
We began the annual red and grey squirrel monitoring programme for Red Squirrel Northern England in 2022. This large scale citizen science project is repeated each year in spring, where ourselves and other groups sample 300 woodlands and gardens across northern England. Surveys are carried out using trail cameras, by walking through woodlands and recording squirrels seen, or by observing squirrels visiting garden feeders.
On the right are our 2022 Spring Survey Results which are positive in two respects. Our red squirrels have expanded and established in new areas and we are holding off any encroachment of grey squirrels into those areas.
Red = Red
Grey = Grey
