When Malcolm drew back the bedroom curtains on Wednesday morning, he saw a white squirrel looking for food on the lawn!

He went off to play in a croquet tournament - and suggested I might keep watch! When I was having lunch I saw the squirrel on the caged fat feeder - which is monitored throughout the day. Smile

Rare! Looks like albinistic: besides of being (summertime) visible to predators, the lack of pigments causes it being vulnerable to solar radiation.
