A dad captured a series of amazing pictures of a rare albino squirrel outside his house.

Richard Waugh, 51, was thrilled when he spotted the white squirrel scampering around outside his flat in Edinburgh.

The rare squirrel named Lexy has become a regular visitor to the garden.

He snapped pictures of the cheeky squirrel rummaging around in the leaves on Saturday

The unique white colour is caused by an absence of melanin, which affects its skin and hair, and caused its eyes to go red or pink.

“I was going to out to the shops, and she was running about, luckily I had my camera with me.

“She seemed to be in a good mood and posed for a few photos.

“I reckon it’s about four years she has been hanging about here now, I’ve been lucky and seen her a lot.

You looking at me?

“I usually see her a couple of times a week, although she seems to disappear for a couple of weeks at a time, it’s always good to see her when she’s back.

“I don’t really feed her but on rare occasions, I sometimes see her from the flat window and take down a few nuts to scatter about in the grass and trees.

“She is quite cheeky, sometimes she just runs off with a couple of cheeky glances back from the trees, other times it’s like she is sitting posing for photos.

“She seems to get on well enough with the other wildlife.

“She’s pretty fast on her feet and she gives as good as she gets when she if she is getting bullied.”
