Rickmav - Photos of Christmas in England

Hi everyone. Here are the photos from our Christmas in England - we were there from Nov. until Dec. 30, 2006. For anyone interested, my trip report is at:

I still haven't figured out how to re-arrange the photos in the proper order on Shaw's program, but I'm hoping that won't ruin your enjoyment. Let me know if you have any questions.

WONDERFUL! I've been waiting for the photos.

(I have a picture of a praying kitty almost identical to your praying squirrel)

Thanks janis. It is a squirrel, is it? I wasn't sure if it was a squirrel or chipmunk. Obviously, I am not an outdoorsy kind of girl.

I'll have to go back and look again but I think it was a gray squirrel . . . . . .

Thank you so very much for the beautiful photos and music -sax is my favorite. It was all so together. I was scanning the post when ---- there you were, I have been watching every day. I have visited England twice. We covered 4000 miles in 3 weeks. I'll always remember those times. Still no photo of you my Lady, or did I miss it? Thanks again for all your efforts. I'll still watch for whatever else you want to share, Jean

We don't have chipmonks in the UK. It's a squirrel.

Nice set of pics.

Great photos.
It was a very good time to visit, few tourists and a chance to meet the locals

Thanks everyone. I didn't know about the chipmunk thing in England. I guess that's one thing that we (Canadians) have that you don't. Oh, and our prime minister Stephen Harper. But we don't want him. Interested?

No thanks. ;-) I wish you could take all your grey squirrels back too (they were introduced from N.American continent and have taken over the whole country). Our native red squirrels are practically extinct now. As well as being the indigenous squirrel they are 10 times cuter. See here for some pics http://uk.search.yahoo.com/search/im...el&fr2=tab-web

I remember somebody posting a YouTube clip where some American tourists had brought their own food to Britain because "The British eat squirrels and chipmunks".
When I pointed out that there are no chipmunks here, some wag said that this was because we've eaten them all.

Well, there you go.
We've eaten all the red squirrels.
I have seen them in the Highlands.

Pine Martens also live in Scotland
see

and http://sylvia.photoblog.me.uk/p29487153.html

I have been told that they like nothing better than a nice fat grey squirrel.
It seems that they are slower and easier to catch than the red ones.

I've seen the greys cooked on TV once in a 'wild food' programme. Very good for you apparently. Maybe we should try to eat them all and solve the problem that way. No different to eating wild rabbit.
