Welcome to the Liddesdale Red Squirrel Network

The Liddesdale Red Squirrel Network was formed in 2019 to promote the long term conservation of red squirrels along the Liddel Water and Hermitage Water catchment areas. This area incorporates Newcastleton and surrounding villages, and also viable habitat for red squirrels in areas of woodland including Newcastleton Forest. Part of the Network area is also within the Teviot and Rule Priority Area.

We are always looking for new volunteers to get involved in lots of different roles including events, fundraising, squirrel surveys, admin and grey squirrel control. If you would like to get in touch, please click the ‘Contact Group Admin’ button.
