Barbara Gray in Kent has been a BTO Garden BirdWatcher since 1996 and recently acquired a very bold and acrobatic rat! As a consequence, Barbara modified her feeding practice to restrict the rat's access to the bird food. This did the job, and the frustrated rat moved elsewhere. For tips about deterring rats, see our advice page.
