Swimming squirrel

Tourists aboard a pleasure boat could hardly their eyes when they saw a red squirrel on an epic swim 300 metres from shore.

Passengers lowered a rope to allow the squirrel to climb aboard and hitch a lift. Once back on dry land, the squirrel fled.  The location is curious, given William Wordsworth’s love of the Lake District.

The timing is strange too because the swim coincided with the launch of the WWF paper boat campaign.

In our tale, Mary Shelley sets to sail a paper boat which Charles Lamb unwittingly sinks with a stone.  Here’s a red squirrel trying to climb aboard.
