BLAME THE GULLS – Daily Mail 2001 September: By J Erskins.

Demise of our songbirds has nothing to do with modern farming or changes in the weather. I was brought up on farms working on them for 30 years so know a lot about wildlife and farming in general.

‘Take it from me that unless we have a cull of magpies, crows, grey squirrels and seagulls there will soon be none of the aforementioned songbirds left.’

I took my dog for walks across the fields near where we live. The trees and hedgerows go all the way round the fields except for the gateways.

This spring I witnessed two blackbird pairs and one thrush make nests there. A magpie started making its nest in a sloe tree next to the gateway about 100m from
the songbirds nests.

‘Not one pair brought any young up from their nests and I saw magpies eating the thrush eggs.’

“I have seen squirrels eating the songbird eggs, attack the chicks and I have watched them trying to bury the eggs under leaves.”

‘I have also witnessed seagulls eating lapwing peewit and skylark eggs.’

‘The gulls now outnumber the rooks that used to follow the plough; some of our paddocks that the skylark used to nest in are now overrun with gulls.’

So don’t blame our farmers or the change in the weather just like the RSPB’ repeatedly does. Blame the do-gooders who say we must not kill anything? Forgetting what they and most humans – ‘eat!’

Modern feeders changes in bird feeding are threatening species.
