Food for One

The much maligned American Grey Squirrel, here seen feeding on Bird food put out at the Black Rock Picknic Site in Eastern Gwent. It is a Mammal that is not native to the UK and unfortunately has ousted the native Red Squirrel. Although some blame this on it's better resistance to desease, Parapoxvirus, which does not appear to affect their health but often kills red squirrels, In the main it is bigger and more successful at foraging. In it's native eastern North America, it is the most prodigious and ecologically essential natural forest regenerator, where forgotten seed cahes will sprout in the spring so it can help to maintain the ecology of the woodlands, so nott all bad.
