From Dave Johnson, Sandown:

I’ve just received an e-mail from BBC South, which is following up reports of buzzard attacks on red squirrels, here on the Island.

It is doing some research on this subject, with a view to a possible programme on this issue.

Has anyone heard of attacks on reds here on the Island, or seen evidence of a kill?

I would be very interested to hear from anyone regarding this matter.

This could prove to be a real dilemma, with both species protected but the red squirrel surely needing more protection?
