Thomas, wildlife in the garden is essential, and yes birds will take some slugs - but don't feel bad about killing the little blighters! Beer traps are good - small yogurt pots are ideal sunk in the ground and keep the liquid level with the soil. Dont know about putting them in the compost, but leaving them in an odd corner would let the birds get them. I wouldn't imagine theres much alcohol in them to affect the birds.
