Meanwhile, Andrew is looking for red squirrels at the Llyn Parc Mawr Community Woodland near Newborough.

In 1997 there were just 40 red squirrels left on the whole of Anglesey. Since then the Red Squirrel Trust has worked with local volunteers to prevent them from being completely wiped out.

Today the red squirrels are thriving with numbers at around 700.

"In 1997 we only had 40 red squirrels left on Anglesey. From those 40 we now have 700 today"
