The BBC reports on new research by the British Trust for Ornithology and Natural England, which has concluded that grey squirrels probably do not have a significant impact on woodland bird populations.

It was thought that grey squirrels were impacting severely by eating eggs and fledglings, but the research has not appeared to bear this out. In some limited cases there were localised effects, but overall impact was not evident.
