Red Squirrel Reflection Pool hide (Nature Photography Hides), Ringford, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland (January 2014)

This photo was taken at 9:30 am. Guided by Alan McFadyen, photographers enter the hide at about 7.30 am while it is still dark. The Reflection Pool Hide is a 2-person hide situated next to but set back from the 3-person Sparrowhawk hide. The Sparrowhawk perches can be viewed from the Reflection Pool hide but the pool cannot be seen from the Sparrowhawk hide. Here, the Red Squirrel is sat on a mossy perch placed beside the end of the reflection pool at a distance of about 6 metres. It then moved to the reflection pool and stayed feeding on nuts for 30 minutes until about 10.00 am. Alan said that the Red Squirrel normally turns up in the morning; it was not spotted during any of the afternoons of the 3-day trip. Unfortunately, it was mostly feeding with its back to the hide and there was no reflection in the pool due to the heavy rain and strong winds.
