Welcome to the community newsletter for Barrow-on-Humber and Barrow Haven, both villages being just south of the Humber bank in North Lincolnshire.
We hope to inform and amuse the residents in these two villages and now that we have an online presence, we do hope that you will find our website interesting too.


The red squirrel

The long tail helps the squirrel to balance and steer when jumping from tree to tree and running along branches and may keep the animal warm during sleep.  The red squirrel, like most tree squirrels, has sharp, curved claws to enable it to climb and descend broad tree trunks, thin branches and even house walls.  Its strong hind legs enable it to leap gaps between trees and they have four fingers and five toes and they can be right or left-handed when eating a pine cone.  Reds’ coats moult twice a year, once after winter and then in the late summer before the weather gets colder. They moult their ear tufts once a year, in late autumn.  The red squirrel also has the ability to swim.
