Me to. Having said that I’d like to see them gone from here because they are an introduced species which eat the eggs of ground nesting birds.
It's a real shame when that happens. They were introduced to South Uist (allegedly to keep down the slugs) but had to be exterminated after decimating the eggs of ground nesting birds. `we don't have them here - and we don't seem to have many slugs, either.
