... like reaction to war, I find it horrendous and don't really want to dwell on it, so this won't class as one of my more favourite activities.
At Hoddom Castle and the surrounding area they have managed to eliminate all the grey squirrels and are encouraging the return of the red squirrel, though I didn't see any. Given the lack of squirrels, Treacle's main passion on this site was to chase the rabbits through the castle woods and she was often to be heard screaming ...
