     Carole Graham replied to this: Thank you Katerina. I love squirrels! The red squirrel is native to the British Isles, but it's numbers have declined a lot in recent years because it fell victim to competition from grey squirrels from N. America which were introduced over here about 130 years ago. They are now projects in some areas to help the reds re-establish themselves, which is good :)
     Katerina Romanova replied to this: Ah, yes, I've heard that the grey squirrels are apparently less picky about food in addition to being carriers of a disease that they're immune to, while the reds aren't. It's very sad. :(

     Carole Graham replied to this: Thank you Sue. Just putting the finishing touches to it and will upload the finished version soon.
