An endangered red squirrel orphan who was found close to death has been nursed back to health.
Rescuers admitted it was "touch and go" when the kit, which they have named Gary, was brought in aged just four days old and covered in bites.
He was discovered by a dog walker near Buckie on the Moray coast and rushed to the nearest pet shop.
He was then taken to the New Arc animal sanctuary in Aberdeenshire where he has fought back to full health.
