My cat just sits and watches the birds, never caught one, my dog however was quite partial to pigeon.
The main reason birds are in decline is poor farming practice, although, that will be sorted out when Brexit happens.
My OH when he had his farm was told he had to block up every gap in his barns so that no swallows could get in and nest, and if they did he had to pull the nest out.
so what with that and spraying, weed killers, and not leaving the hedges alone, what can we expect but birds in decline.
