Squirrel babies will often get sent out on short exploration trips after they have been weaned at 7 weeks, finally leaving the drey for good after 10 weeks. This pair were very friendly and kept coming over wanting to be picked up. This behaviour is normal, as at this stage they don’t see humans as a threat and look for the interaction and warmth they would normally get from their parents. Although I couldn’t see the parents anywhere, I really hope the babies were ok and just out exploring rather than in trouble. Whilst it was sad to leave them, it’s always best not to intervene as with wildlife you can never quite know the full situation or circumstances. I just had to hope they would be ok.
