This young squirrel was following its mother when it took a leap which was too big for it.It landed in the very fine twigs at the end of a branch and then slowly over about three minutes fell out of the tree via three other branches.It did not run back up a tree but wandered about in the undergrowth until it saw me and my dog and then it came over to have a closer look.It climbed a tree stump and came within two foot of me,I put my hand within four inches of it.
