It's almost two years since I first saw the White (Grey) Squirrel at Marbury Country Park.
The parkland looks wonderful at this time of year.
My aim for the day today was to (unsuccessfully) capture a Nuthatch in it's classic pose.
On my way back to the car a guy carrying a camera asked me whether I had seen the white squirrel.
I told him I had but it must be at least 18 months ago.
He informed me it had been seen this morning around the car park.
I headed back to my car and low and behold there it was... just a few yards from where I was parked.
I backtracked to tell photographer where it was...
... as I drove off I passed him and he gave me the thumbs up... he'd seen it.
Just record shots...
...and no!... I didn't run it over.

"This ultra rare creature is thought to be one of only five grey squirrels in Britain suffering from leucism - a mutated gene which turns them pure white but keeps their eyes black"
