Black squirrels are the same species as the common grey squirrel, but they have a mutation that means they are missing some DNA.  The first wild black squirrel was recorded over a hundred years ago in Woburn, a town first recorded in the 10th Century.  Woburn is now a tourist attraction with an abbey and wildlife safari park, about 40-minutes' drive from Letchworth Garden City.  These unusual squirrels, which are not found in many other places in Europe, are frequent visitors to St. Francis' College, where this photograph was taken.  We see them regularly, often eating the apples growing on the trees in one of our wildlife areas.
