Moms are busy, regardless of species

Paying close attention to wildlife paid off for Trevor Wadman.

The New London man recently noticed a squirrel had moved into his birdhouse and was raising babies there.

“I kept a close eye and waited for her to move, said Wadman.”

On June 2, Wadman grabbed his camera and snapped action shots of the mother transporting the babies, one by one, into a neighbour’s barn to a more permanent home. “I think there’s four babies in total,” he said.

Wadman has past experience with photographing wildlife in his backyard.

A few years ago he tracked the movement of a weasel and her young.

“She had babies too and was taking the kids through my yard.”

Wadman said the squirrel and her young should be safe in the old building at his neighbour’s.

“There’s no outside cats in the area, so they should be fine.”
