How Did the Grey Squirrel Spread over Time?

Answer

The grey squirrel is native to North America and was only introduced to Ireland, Great Britain and South Africa. In 1870, a small number was first brought to Cheshire (Henbury) and later distributed to 28 other major sites across the United Kingdom. They then started aggressively spreading outwards and have outgrown the red squirrels ever since.

The Grey squirrel is a tree squirrel in the Sciurus genus and is characterised by mostly grey fur but may sometimes have a reddish colour. In 1873 the grey squirrel was introduced in Henbury and has since spread across UK. It is still unclear as to how the grey squirrel have managed to spread quickly although some have claimed that it is because the grey squirrel has a much faster reproduction rate as compared to the red squirrel.

Grey squirrels were not released into the wild until 1876. More introductions followed, like the pair which were released at Loch Long in 1892. As a result, within 25 years grey squirrels had spread to the eastern side of Loch Lomond and into Stirlingshire, an area of 300 square miles
