Presumably you would also shoot all the egrets, ibis and storks now populating the UK as a result of global warming, along with red kites and any other off-course avian visitor?  Nigel Farage of the ornithological world?

We had 2 visiting our feeders here in Fulwood until we put the squirrel guard on. They are obviously nesting in a tree two or three gardens up the road as there are now 3 of them!

They are hideously noisy ...

Interesting. Whereabouts in Fulwood are you?

Brooklands Avenue. Long gardens and (still) plenty of trees!

I counted 11 in Graves Park just after New Year. They were feeding in a yew tree adjacent to the top pond.

I see them regularly flying from the woods between Longley Hall Road and Barnsley Road, the woods that go down to the Northern General hospital, not sure if its called Bagley Dyke.

Didn't visually see it, but my birdnet app identified one at Salmon Pastures last week.
