Was on holiday in India and wasn't sure what this Mammal was?
It's certainly a palm squirrel, probably an Indian or three-striped palm squirrel Funambulus palmarum. There is also a northern or five-striped which has an extra pair of pale stripes - I can't discern these here but they can be difficult to see. See http://www.sinclair2.karoo.net/India2011/india2011.html#Northern_palm_sq... for some photos of the northern species.

Thanks for the identifying, much appreciated.
I've looked at the photos and have gone for the Indian palm squirrel
