Pete's Walks - 'Black' Squirrel

These are not true Black Squirrels (which can be found in parts of Europe) but an unusual form of the common Grey Squirrel.  They can be found in one or two parts of the country, particular around the Hitchin part of Hertfordshire (Hitchin is about 15 miles from where I live in Kensworth). My parents tell me there have been 'Black' squirrels around in Kensworth for the 50+ years they have live here, and we see them in the garden a few times each year (and I've occasionally seen them elsewhere in the village).
