A potential omen for the England football team appeared this week when a white squirrel was caught on camera by a golfer in Cuckfield.
John Wellington took the picture during a round of golf at Cuckfield Golf Course.
He said: “Saw this white squirrel messing about near the third on Monday. An omen? Let’s just say the beast was clearly wearing its all-white England strip.
“It remains to find out whether he is an England fan or not,” he added.
He took three pictures on his mobile phone, but was unable to get close.
Marc Farrell, who works at Cuckfield Golf Course, said: “He is trialling to take Rooney’s place as we speak.
“We wish the white squirrel the best of luck with his challenges ahead, and in the mean time hope he keeps dodging those wayward tee shots!”
There have been many sightings of the white squirrel recently, but this is the only known photograph.
