Red squirrel Harilik orav Sciurus vulgaris
We have already noticed the increased mobility or mating period of the so-called urban or city squirrels in parks, cemeteries and garden cities despite the cold winter weather. In cities there is a couple more degrees of warmth in the air than in the forest. To that comes the light pollution and somewhat different feeding habits in the urban conditions. The mating games of our forest inhabitants should also have started.
