    Today I see black squirrels. I've just read up about them and are mainly in the Hertfordshire area. It read that they are more aggressive than the grey.

    I did see the blacks chasing the greys

    This would worried me if I was a red.

    I remember seeing black squirrels in Toronto, in the city park areas. Ive not seen any over here.

    The most surprising thing to see, or more likely hear are parakeets. Common in Richmond park and now parts of Surrey.

    And in Kent.....a colony of yellow tailed scorpions

    These are not as Black or as big as the ones around Toronto. I'd did see pure white one in Burlington. Possibly albino

    Black squirrels are supposed to be quite aggressive, don't know how true it is though.
    And yes, lots of parakeets in London and surrounding areas. I wake up to the strange, varied calls they make in the morning. Beautiful bird.

    That's north of Richmond innit?! :)


    Second half of vid shows them in Hyde Pk.

    Yeah black squirrels.......I blame it on free movement.

    And a lot of them are overstayers.

    No doubt the Essex ones stand out with their straightened hair and botox lips

    What else was interesting was the Red Kites flying in and about the black bears and Wolves.
