I do wish that red squirrels could either:
a) not be so damn cute and fluffy
b) not be so endangered
c) not hang about on the middle of the road making up their cute fluffy ginger minds before deciding at the last possible minute that the way to safety lies under the wheels of the oncoming car, as opposed to, say, not.
Or at the very least not do it during red squirrel week.
Fortunately it was still bouncing across the road with its cute fluffy tail in the air after we passed so we must have missed it.
