I found these to be very informative and should help others
I did a Speed Paint of a Grey Squirrel in the rain (we are in the UK after all! )
Displays one of the common myths about Grey Squirrels
"Myth - Grey squirrels are responsible for the decline of red squirrels
While grey squirrels have a competitive advantage over reds and have displaced them from much of England, red squirrel numbers declined drastically between 1900 and 1925, before grey squirrels had become established.
In southern Scotland and Ireland, red squirrels were extinct by the 18th century due to deforestation and habitat loss – those there today are a result of reintroductions. In England, red squirrels were viewed as a pest and almost wiped out.
Controlling grey squirrels in areas where reds occur today is necessary if populations of reds are going to be preserved, but elsewhere grey squirrels are simply part of the natural ecology and our mammal fauna."

Good day to you, my fellow grey squirrel enthusiasts! I just thought that I should basically make a statement to tell you that I have mastered my terrible technology skillage to find my way to you and help Emily spread the Grey Squirrel Lurve! As you may have guessed, as well as being the co-owner of the site, I help keep Emily's horrific grammar and over-enthusiasm/optimism in check while battling the demons of stress, laziness and a really rubbish keyboard. Here's to...well, however long this little project will last!
