Here at BBC Surrey we have had an interest in our local white squirrel population ever since 2003, when Persil the baby albino squirrel fell out of a tree in Leatherhead.
Since then we have been sent many photos of the little white creatures who visit your garden and parks in Surrey, on a regular basis.
When Persil and his grey brother Daz, were accidentally knocked out of a Surrey tree by two boys playing football, it was thought the little white one was very rare.
In fact, the odds against a pure white squirrel being born were one in 100,000. But since then, it appears that Surrey's white squirrel population has been going from strength to strength.
Sadly though, that population has just been reduced by one. Percy the white squirrel (seen here) who lived in St Martin's Churchyard, just off Dorking High Street, has met an untimely end.
It's been reported that on 27 October Percy was the victim of a fatal road accident. He was found by Lou Gardey who's been quoted as saying "We made a little grave for him with a little wooden cross".
Dorking residents have been understandably upset by the death of their small albino neighbour. St Martin's vicar, the Reverend Stuart Peace estimated him to have been about 5 years old.
Percy has featured on the BBC pages for Surrey on a number of occasions over the years. His friendly nature and penchant for nuts made him a firm favourite with everyone who came across him.
Dorking residents can take comfort in the fact that, although Percy may have gone to the Big Oak Tree in the Sky, his memory will live on through all the other little white squirrels in Surrey.
Here is a picture of one of Croydon's albino squirrels taken by Martin Brown.
Laurence in Coulsdon says he was astonished to see this squirrel in a tree between Oaks Park and Woodcote Golf course.
He says he didnít know such things existed!! But here in Surrey we seem to have cornered the market in albino squirrels!
Nathan Fraser has a regular white visitor to his garden in Chaldon. He says it seems particularly fond of their oak and pine trees.
Nathan told us "usually it has gone by the time I get the camera and zoom lens out" but he has managed to take a couple of pictures for us.
