What I did
Walked hounds and encountered grey squirrel warning

Flag of United Kingdom  , Scotland,
Thursday, May 12, 2011

Ettrick has a colony of that rare and wondrous beast the red squirrel. On our morning trot we came across the sign below warning everyone to be on the lookout for a grey squirrel (or squirrels) who has/have been seen in the area. I know grey squirrels are bad news if you're of a red persuasion but I do hope they don’t do anything awful to him/her/them. I mean it's not like the grey ones are targeting the reds with strategic nuclear weapons - because that would be mad. As I understand it the main problem is that the grey’s eat all the food before the red’s can get a look in, which is not the same at all.

Capture and transportation get’s my vote. It works for the mice that occasionally bust into my larder.

'Onya Rick! You're doing a grand job. A very entertaining commentary.

35mph on

Thanks Peter, not up to HVM's standard but it's fun collecting each day's adventures together for the blog.
