Are they all the same

I have had a similar experience, could this be a common characteristic of these lovely red squirrels?

Yup, I think they are all feisty redheads.

Last week whilst I was in these woods. I found a red squirrel. Unfortunately My camera battery went dead. I was gutted. He came right down to the branch above my head, to give me a jolly good swearing at. I can only imagine what foul profanities he was hurling at me. So this week I made sure the battery was fully charged. There he was collecting beechnuts on the ground. He was furious, and climbed to the nearest branch to chuck the beechnuts. I presumed this was the same squirrel because of all the cursing he was doing, but I now think they are all fiery redheads.
