Or are you lucky to have a few red as well? LikeLiked by 1 person Yes, the Greys. No Reds locally. All pushed further north. LikeLiked by 1 person It was a problem even when I lived there. Are the Reds making a comeback? ( the squirrels of course, not perishing Manchester united.) LikeLiked by 1 person Lol! 🙂 They are in some areas, but the Greys still a threat to them. LikeLike So cute. I wish we had Squirrels instead of Possums. I suppose its something to do with my love of Beatrix Potter stories I used to read when working as a Children’s Nanny in Sussex.

There is always so much on hand when you just look closely enough. We are lucky to have lots of wildlife too. But for the first time have just been plagued by grey squirrels which have been destroying some trees. Bizarrely they stripped all the young growth of a medium sized horse chestnut leaving it in tatters the little b@*!!+s (rascals). They are also stripping bark from trees which is a pain Anyway keep posting. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you 🙂 Grey Squirrels can be quite a destructive force to trees. Sadly I have seen the bark stripped off trees around here, too. And if they get in your loft, you certainly have some troubles. LikeLike Reply Beautiful shot!

They either blend into the trees or scarper quick. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply He/she was quite a cheek one 🙂 LikeLike Reply Your thoughts ... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
