Squirrel

This is definitely squirrel but why do you think red squirrel? Grey squirrels also strip pine cones in this way.

Have there been recent red squirrel re-introductions? I know there is a lot of work going on a little further north in the forests of Mid-Wales. I worked for the Dyfed Wildlife Trust in the late 1980s and to my knowledge there were no red squirrels in West Wales then.
