It’s all white

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

WE won­dered if your read­ers might be in­ter­ested to see the white squir­rel liv­ing in our guest­house gar­den at Craigatin House & Court­yard, Pit­lochry.

A reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to our feed­ers since the sum­mer, this squir­rel is lit­er­ally one in a mil­lion. Wildlife spot­ters think there’s a very ex­clu­sive club of squir­rels with a mu­tated gene caus­ing leu­cism, which means they have white fur, but not the red eyes as­so­ci­ated with al­binism. We think he or she is fan­tas­tic and need to thank one of our guests, Mr Alan C. Tough, for the pic­tures. Mar­tin An­der­son, Perthshire
