The grey-squirrel species ranks alongside the domestic and feral cat as the top predator of farmland and garden birds. This according to Professor –
Roy Brown of Birkbeck University of London in a review carried out for the wildlife songbird charity Songbird Survival.

Professor Brown said: “Many factors have been blamed for the decline in our Songbirds in recent years. The debate about raptors ( hawks ) has raised the issue of predators but mammal predation had largely been overlooked.”

The review shows that the true impact of this predation is even much worse than had been expected. The study clearly shows that cats and grey squirrels predate severely on not virtually. But – ALL of our Garden Songbirds.

Increasing densities of these mammals; the grey-squirrel ranks alongside the domestic and feral cat.

They both can cause the complete cessation of breeding in all of the many species of garden songbirds.
