Devil squirrel

We went to a Small Woods Association skillshare last week which was most informative.  One of the speakers was Rob Penn, the presenter of BBC series “Tales from the Wild Wood”.

Rob described his battles with grey squirrels – their bark stripping habits  can result in tree death.  Rob illustrated his tales with a slide of an evil squirrel.

This resonated with David, who was moved to apply similar horns and tail to one of our cuties. We have seen some squirrel damage, but have not yet worked out this is a significant problem in our neck of the woods.

The Forestry Commission advise monitoring population size:
