Albino squirrels and white squirrels, UK

Just before Christmas I paid a visit to a local spot where I’d heard there were a pair of Albino squirrels, uploaded to Alamy & used in the Sunday Times as below. These are true Albino Grey Squirrels and not just white squirrels.

Albino, or white squirrels, Eastbourne

I noticed today that I had a little white theme going on recently, not entirely out of the ordinary considering its the winter and even in England that sometimes means SNOW! Not that we cope at all well with it and the country generally grinds to a big slushy stop as people try to empty the supermarket shelves of bread and milk.


These are true albino squirrels as you can tell by the completely red eye.
