Disappearing grey squirrels

  • I live outside of Manchester in a semi-rural location, opposite some woods. Over the past months our squirrels have all disappeared. We haven't seen any for ages and usually our garden is very popular with them. We are quite concerned. What's happening?
  • A tricky one, there are many possibilities from natural predation to rodent control, even a combination of more than one possibility.

    Is the woodland owned and managed by a private owner, public owner (ie council) or a conservation trust?

    If its owned and managed by a conservation trust, you may try contacting them and sharing your observations, if anyone else, I doubt you'd get any response.
