AN UNEXPECTED visitor was spotted by a photographer during a walk around the Rhyl harbour.

The squirrel was snapped by John Knight. John has been selected alongside nine other amateur photographers as a Rhyl Instagram champion.

Each week, the Journal features the work of one of the champions.

John said: "I have always loved Rhyl, having spent most of my childhood holidays here at the fairground or the beach.

"During the school holidays, I actually worked for two summers on the 'gaff' and three seasons as a waiter at Prestatyn holiday camp.

"I am constantly delighted to be living beside the sea - the weather, the beach, the tides, the sky, the winds - every day is different."
