If you missed the last episode of BBC Countryfile and you can get iPlayer, you might enjoy the piece on red squirrels showing the trapping and tagging of reds (with no ill effects) in order to ascertain if nest boxes could be erected to mitigate the effects of felling. The whole programme is well worth watching – squirrels come on at 55 minutes into the episode. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08lnhfb/countryfile-forests
