Well my photography skills are only as good as my camera and I only see daylight at weekends but I finally managed to get into my 16 year old daughters room to be greeted with cobwebs hanging from her light fittings
I wouldn't mind but she hates spiders, but obviously hates cleaning even more

From that shot they do look a bit like trifids, the flash did not fire.
Here they are in the light.

You can legally kill Grey squirrels, as long as you intend on eating them, helps to control the population to help the ol' Reds to make a comeback... ;)

Actually 2cv you can kill grey tree rats legally anyway - the are classed as vermin.

(At least in Scotland)

Ive only ever seen a red once - I ran over one that was sitting in the middle of the A68! :-ohmy

My excuse is that I did the race a favour - any critter that dumb doesnt deserve to breed. The average IQ of the reds must have gone up a few fractions of a point that day!!
