Red Squirrel Group
We currently have a red squirrel group operating in the Clogher Valley area with feeding stations at Favour Royal, Altadaven wood (St. Patricks Chair) and Fardross forest. Our aim is to help to increase the population of our native red squirrel in these pockets where this now rare species still exist. We hope that by supplying food the squirrel will produce bigger broods as it has been proved that this is the case when things are plentiful.
It is thought that the survival of our red squirrel is closely linked to the pine marten, another animal in danger of becoming extinct on this island.
We are also interested in recording sightings of these and other species of birds and animals you see when out in these areas. You can record your sightings here on our sightings form.
