Red Squirrel Swims Clayton Lake

MVFN Nature Notebook Sightings

Sighting sent in August 28, 2016:

We have seen red squirrels swim before across rivers in Algonquin
park.  Early this evening one swam about 200 metres across from an island to
our dock on Clayton Lake. It ran up the dock steps, onto my shirt, across
the dock and up a tree.  I snapped these while it was swimming
towards us.
