In reply to PimperneBloke:
PimperneBloke said:Lovely set Mike. Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour has a resident population too. I saw my 1st one this summer with Mrs PB, (well fair's fair, she spotted it coz I just saw a blur lol) after probably 8 or 10 visits over the years.
Thank you PB.
Yes Brownsea Is does have reds, I had forgotten that (though I shouldn't have, being an ex-scout leader).
I recall seeing them regularly in N Wales and Snowdonia as a child in the 60's, but alas, apart from Anglesey today, and when I've been to the Highlands in Bonnie Scotland (hopefully a return trip next year).
