I wish we had red squirrel here, but sadly these little monsters have ousted them all. Yes, they're cute and I know this lad provides a great deal of entertainment for my client but they are very destructive. Tree rats, one knowledgeable client once called them.
I should, but don't really care when it comes to a species that has long since taken over in this area, and is so prolific that the chances of bringing our native reds back are as good as nil. Their antics provide my elderly clients, and many others, countless hours of enjoyment,
There are those that are trying to put them back on the menu. Not sure that will work!
