Having waited for several hours with this population of Red Squirrels, waiting for the other people at the sit to leave, the Squirrels eventually began to approach and get closer to the path. Clearly fascinated by his reflection, this individual kept perching nearby looking directly into the camera, before eventually reaching over and climbing onto the camera I was holding!
