Since all the river bank work has been going on, we haven't seen a single squirrel... I am just hoping that the drastic bank clearance that is going on for the pecheurs hasn't destroyed the corridors.... but I fear it has.
I've added a couple of things to the tick entry... one is telling people to read your comment... the other is a link I forgot to put in about Lyme Disease.

Thank goodness we don't (yet) have any of the North American gray squirrels here in France. Around Saint-Aignan, I see red squirrels only once in a while, and almost never near our house.

Ken,
Some idiot has released grey squirrels in Belgium... near the French border... there is a concerted effort to eradicate the pests
