About Us

We are a group of dedicated volunteers who care passionately about our native Red Squirrels. We were inspired to help our reds: though once a common sight, they have become a rarity in our gardens in recent years.

Formed in March 2013, our members felt compelled to take action once we understood the plight of our native red species.

Due to our actions in recent years however the grey population has been held and possibly reduced - the good news is that through our web site, a greater number of red sightings are being recorded in our local area. Our efforts are paying dividends and we encourage anyone who cares about our native species to get involved, either through reporting sightings or in hands-on involvement with the volunteer group.

We operate along the River Coquet, east of the A697, incorporating Swarland, Felton, Thirston and downstream to Guyzance and Warkworth.
Helped by RSNE, a small group of volunteers meet regularly to compare notes and act upon sightings of greys within the area.

If you would like to come and join us, we always welcome volunteers who can help with a variety of tasks including writing for village magazines, blogging, going to village shows, thinking of ways to raise funds or working in the woods.

Membership is free, we just need you to spread the word!
