This is the suggestion:

Perhaps a change in ….
THE WANDERING CAT act..which is decades out of date.  This would then make owners of cats be responsible for their pets activities..

The RSPB should have promoted this move long ago???

Further thoughts on cat control ,   –  would be to contact your local authority requesting a change on cats free wandering status,because of its adverse impact on the natural environment.  This is now an out dated law for cats which was implemented decades ago when common bird numbers were in abundance .

As of now common birds are in dangerous decline.

The Wandering Cats Act and change of status on cats free wandering status.  Two suggestions that we could all look into with the knowledge it would certainly help our garden birds.

I will write more on this.
