Grey squirrel

These feisty North American rodents have chased away the native red squirrels in most British oak forests. They make their homes inside spherical twiggy structures called dreys, and spend the autumn months gathering and burying acorns. They also eat bulbs, tree shoots, roots and fungi, and even the occasional egg.
