This time last year I was amazed by the number Of squirrel's that I was spotting every day sometimes as many as three or four at a time. Before last year I hadn't seen any squirrel's either red or grey anywhere in Barrow. And yet last year the town was awash with the grey variety in fact I had a few near misses with them not having the sense to cross the road with care, a fact proved by lot's of deceased balls of fur. This year so far I haven't seen a single one grey or red ,dead or alive. What I wonder could cause this drastic swing from last years glut to this. Is their a shortage of food for them or has a new predator appeared, maybe one of the mystery giant black cats spotted in the area has developed a taste for them .
