Later he showed some red squirrels also frolicking and made the astounding statement that, reds are increasing in Ireland because the greys are decreasing because the martens are increasing.
No-one knows why this is taking place but it is. He mused that for millenia the martens and the reds have rubbed along together but the greys are a recent introduction so they can't live with the martens for some unknown reason.
Anyway, three cheers for that and I hope it happens in England and Scotland too
