The FC used to pay a shilling (5p) for a grey tail - at the time a pint would 
be about 1/6d!
Having seen entire young plantations of beech ruined by greys, if given the 
opportunity I would bite every single one in the UK through the neck myself 
(or maybe draft in some HNS dentures!).
If their tails were not furry they would be seen for what they are.

That aside the frost around here last Thursday was savage, and 
strangely the Fig behind my office which is on a south facing wall  
was untouched, although some stray twigs that stuck out from the 
wall about a metre and
a
half, were nipped. (So possibly not strange at all.) Elsewhere, I 
had a message from one of the local fraternity, querying something 
that sounds very much like frost damage on Oak, Ash, and the bracken
