Pure white apart from his currant-black eyes, this squirrel looks like he's had a run-in with a bottle of bleach.

In fact, the ghost-like creature is one of the rarest you'll see in the UK wild.

The squirrel is one of only a handful of greys in Britain suffering from leucism – a mutated gene which turns them white but keeps their eyes black. 'It was my first time seeing a white squirrel as they are so rare, but hopefully it won't be the last.

'It took me a while to find the squirrel even though I knew there was one in the park due to word of mouth and other people reporting it.'

There are more than five million grey squirrels in Britain, but wildlife experts reckon fewer than one in a million are born with the leucism gene.
