Obese grey squirrels

Perhaps obesity will start to limit fertility in grey squirrels and exert some control on the population!

we can...

....only hope, Gill. We have resorted to greasing the pole of the bird feeder with lard (unfortunately doesn't do much for the aesthetics of the pole) - they really don't like this on their paws. They have still managed to take flying leaps at the bird feeders above with some success. Overall though a mini success because they really don't like fatty paws. So obesity maybe the answer.
