Ah - a tree rat! They look cute, but I'd strangle them all if I could!

Nice shot though

Good shot but I prefer the red ones we get around here!

Me too, but alas I think they are only in North and Mid Wales at the mo.

Not many people know this so keep it quiet, there are organisations that actually trap and despatch the greys, and I volunteer for one of them. Have to say I have not been involved...…...

so far...…….

Strange how some folk get pleasure from slaughtering helpless trapped animals

Probably made up of wannabe big game hunters who don't have the funds to pay for slaughtering anything larger than a squirrel.

Normally I'd agree with you but the grey squirrel is an alien import and an invasive species that all but wiped out our native reds. I don't believe there's any pleasure to be derived from culling them.

Re: Horizontal Squibble

I haven't seen a grey one here in the Dales for ages but the reds are on the increase I'm pleased to say. Killhope Lead Mining Museum in Weardale has a hide where you can get up close to the little critters, last time I was there there were at least a dozen playing around in the woods and chattering .

Re: Horizontal Squibble

As others have said, I'd prefer to see more (any!) reds. But as here the greys do produce some fantastic photo opportunities.

Re: Horizontal Squibble

We have both in the garden but the greys are getting less due to a cull in the forest on the mountain side above us. We have three young reds who take advantage of the nuts for the birds and they are welcome to them.

Re: Horizontal Squibble

We have had a pair of grey squirrels in our garden for many years. They had some babies last year. I don't know where the little ones are now, guess they have moved off to their own territory. I certainly wouldn't want to see them harmed.


Now wild rabbits - that's another story, they wreck your lawn and the young eat your plants.

The rabbit is another invasive species not native to the UK; it was apparently introduced by the Romans. We've been trying to control them ever since!

Re: Horizontal Squibble

The vast majority of all invasive life anywhere on earth was introduced by human interference with nature.

Left to it's own devices with no interference, nature successfully controls everything. The only true "Invasive Species" are human beings who will no doubt eventually be responsible for the total demise of the planet.
