Has anyone here seen a red squirrel in England before?

That was going to be my next post. When were bears last seen in England?

I fear you overestimate the pulling power of my pointless cyberdrivel.

What makes you think I voted at all?

I'm certainly in favour of a cull of monkeys, especially chimps.

I've seen red squirrels in Co. Durham, the lakes and on Brownsea Island in Dorset.

Lived in Formby for about 20 years, frequently saw red squirrels in the back garden. I always used to describe Formby's whereabouts as "near Liverpool" - doesn't half get the locals upset

Formby is far too posh for rough animals like the Brown Bear

I last saw a red near Buttermere about 18 years ago. There were several in our local park when I was young though, including an albino (Kent). Wish we had some here but there are too many foul greys.
