Jan I can't kill them either. I take them and throw them over the field opposite. They almost certainly return as they are like homing pigeons! A friend of mine put nail varnish on the back of one and took it to the wood at the far end of her garden. It took a couple of weeks but it came back. Frogs, hedgehogs and thrushes are the most efficient way of getting rid of the pesky creatures. I have a small pond so I encourage the frogs to come and I know I have a visiting hedgehog as he spent the winter in my compost heap. Good luck with eradicating yours.
