Subject: RE: BS: Keeping cats from dangerous road
I agree with you Steve although while the cats seem to pick off the odd tit or blackbird without too much damage, any wren the comes to within view of the house only seems to last a few days. No problems with roe deer though and I don't expect the cats to take on the pine martens and badgers that frequent the garden. Now, magpies, they should get onto them a bit more often (although this spring one of our younger cats made a point of climbing into magpies nests and just sit there for a few hours fighting off the upset birds. She managed to force them into making a new nest three times although she didn't succeed in shifting them from out land altogether.)
