“The Earth is Art, The Photographer is only a Witness ”
It’s Sunday so it must be visit the Lake District day! The Lakes are steeped in history and mystery with some stunning caves, stones and more. This week we are having a look at some of the beautiful wild life that I have seen on my many visits to the Lakes.
Perhaps the most iconic of all of the wildlife that has found a sanctuary in the Lake District is the Red Squirrel. Native to the UK, its numbers have reduced significantly since the introduction of its cousin the Grey Squirrel.
The Lake District is one of the last remaining places in England where you can see the Red Squirrel with the largest population in England surviving here. You may also spot road signs alerting you to the possible presence of Red Squirrels, encouraging you to slow down!
Also, Herdwick Sheep can be found roaming freely throughout the Cumbrian fells. This iconic breed is native to Cumbria and it’s thought that 99% of the population live in within the county’s border.
