I saw a squirrel in the garden (= our garden) this morning ~ Was it a red squirrel or a grey squirrel? ~ It was a grey squirrel. I think the squirrel was looking for a nut it had buried under the apple tree (i.e. the apple tree in our garden).
(an article about articles from bbc.co.uk)

Does the green "it" mean "which"?
If so, is that a common use?
Thanks.

    No, it means it. "... the squirrel was looking for a nut [that] it had buried ..." Does that help?
