I feed many a grey squirrel everyday. I would love to see a red one.

I live in England and haven't seen a red squirrel, in the wild, for probably 40 years. Badgers are more common as are toads (and frogs). Generally our wildlife, particularly insects such as bumble bees, seems to be making a recovery following a very mild winter. Yesterday for instance, which was sunny and fairly warm, saw both bumble and honey bees all over the flowering cherry tree that is growing in my garden, a very welcome return (and a wonderful display of scented blossoms as well).

I regularly see frogs in my garden and welcome them as slug control :)

The grey squirrels are very invasive; in Pennsylvania they're driving off the resident reds very quickly.
On the island in Scotland we only have reds ~ no way for the greys to get here.

Read and Noted. I am impressed that over one-half million people took part in the count of animals and not just the birds. Thanks Cher, interesting article.

Its wonderful that we have this much squirrel lovers around. I too love grey color squirrel. but i am very sad that many of my crops destroyed by this squirrel attack. It was last month I have a small farm with various crops but this attack of squirrel made me to lost many crop. I read some control methods for this attack in a site
is this really effective? Does any one know some method to prevent squirrel attack?
