Are red squirrels the ones that have been replaced by the brown ones?

If they are it's an argument for preserving Penrhos Woods and stopping further "development" -- even the ones that will bring 600 jobs.

Numbers of red squirrels are dwindling (scroll down to Background and Conservation).  Apparently, efforts have been made over recent years to reintroduce them into Anglesey.

The existence of an endangered species can sometimes be grounds for a planning objection - natterjack toads being a good example.

1. What right have natterjack toads got to object to planning? If they don't like living here, let them eat cake.
2. If red squirrels are so sought after, why not paint a load of grey ones?  Or, if you want to be all PC about it, just dye their hair.

Problem solved. And I'm not even Donald Trump.

My thought is clinging as to a lost learning
Slipped down out of the minds of men,
Labouring to bring her back into my soul.

Good old Wils ... always ready to leap to the protection of biodiversity ...

(I bet you wouldn't like it if someone told you to dye your hair red in the cause of planning development ... )

That's exactly what happened last week, Jean. Have you been looking at pages 12-14 of the Thursday evening edition of the Peterborough Herald?

If so I just want to make something clear: it wasn't me under the sink when that house blew up, although I did ask a passing stranger what time the next bus was.

I hardly ever read anything else ...

And it never occurred to you that the passing stranger might not have been all that they seemed?

Holyhead is pleasantly cool today after a few days of 23 - 26C temperatures.

At it's peak a couple of days OK, in my back yard/garden (which is walled admittedly) it hit 31c
