Welcome to the Spring 2020 edition of the MADRS Newsletter
Who would have guessed, even a month ago, that our world would be turned upside down by Covid-19 this Spring. We hope that you are all staying as safe and healthy as possible whilst continuing to enjoy your daily exercise activities close to home. If you are lucky enough to live in proximity to squirrels, please remember that we rely on you to report your sightings of both reds and greys in order to help protect the reds from diseases carried by greys. We continue to hear some good news stories of places where reds are now being seen again after a prolonged absence, due to vigilant reporting coupled with grey control: see our piece by Glen Graham, the National Trust’s Red Squirrel Ranger at Wallington. But it is an uphill struggle so please help us to help the reds!
