Blackbirds got most of our outside strawberries last year also our blueberries, cherries and currants but slugs are also a problem with strawberries. I planted some strawberries in large hanging baskets in the greenhouse and poly tunnel - that stopped the pests, also easy to pick! The previous year I planted strawberries in an old sheep trough stood on blocks in the poly tunnel - birds and slugs avoided unfortunately not mice!!
