Our local grey has now decided running along my conservatory roof is great fun.

today he is playing "Bury the nut game "in my lawn.

I know they do damage to houses etc but he does look funny .

    They’re a pain I the wotsit,  they do that here @NewBoy2 and also casually stroll round past the doors, we daren’t open them, they’d be inside.

    If rats had pretty tails, we might enjoy watching their antics too.

    I watched one for ages in a previous garden, carefully take nuts and bury them - just in the top layer of the grass. He didn't realise a magpie was patiently following him and eating them all. 
    I did feel quite sorry for him  :D

    In this modern world of people saying we should reduce the number of cows Squirel and Chips is starting to look a viable option

    Im not sure if I am serious about this topic though

    They apparently taste like chicken @NewBoy2 ;)

    Most white meat apart from chicken tastes like chicken.
