Belvoir Forest Park: Missing Feeders

We're just back from a short drive to Belvoir and Minnowburn. To our disappointment the bird and squirrel feeders, which are a permanent feature of the car park, have been removed. Another visitor informed me that they had been removed due to a chronic problem with rats.

I am making enquiries and shall comment further when I have been apprised of the facts.

When I lived in Greba we had bird feeders up, mainly to feed the red squirrels there. It ended up we fed more rats than squirrels.It'd be a nightmare trying to kill rats without killing squirrels too. I've no idea what they'll do @ Belvoir.

I'm wondering if the health & safety police have their paw-marks all over this decision but I'll withhold condemnation till I receive - or don't receive - their reply. :-)
