Don't remember them being widespread, but I do remember 'pockets' and we used to look out for them when on holiday in Wales and Devon - but then I'm remembering from a very long way back ............. 

I also seem to remember that at one time it was thought they were cross-breedng, but then it was discovered that some greys do have a reddish tinge to their fur - we had greys at work and some of them were 'ginger-ish'. 

HELLO FORKERS!

OL - I think the yellow ones are slightly sweeter - but others disagree - but they do look prettier on the bush and the plate

" To be honest I don't understand why this debate keeps on cropping up...."

 

Some people are naturally provocative, sometimes intentionally and sometimes in all innocence  .......... I tend to ignore threads that seem calculated to cause upset ......there are forums where such discussions are appropriate, but this is primarily a gardening forum rather than for the discussion of the ethics of culling wildlife etc. 

No offence intended to anyone 

HELLO FORKERS!

Sounds good to me Panda - he'll come galloping to the rescue in the nick of time just as you are about to be swallowed by a quicksand   

Has anyone noticed how you don't get quicksands on tv any more 

Bekkie, when the next batch of yellow courgettes are ready I'll make a courgette, sage and walnut quiche - will that do?
