Corncrake is endangered by modern farming practices not Climate Change and is virtually gone here.

Pine Marten is rapidly moving from endangered to safe and happy.

Red Squirrel population is now increasing.

Red Deer population are getting to culling size in Killarney.

Bumble Bee populations go up and down like a Yo-Yo.

The greatest danger to Pygmy Shrews are household cats. Cats are the greatest danger to wildlife anyway. We should follow parts of Australia's example and keep them confined to household boundaries, not let them slaughter creatures when let out at night to the Killing Fields.

Corncrakes are effected by climate change as the deserts they have to cross are expanding and they cannot make it yes it suits the enviornmentalists to say farming practices are a problem, but they spent big money in the shannon callows encourageing farmers to mow from the middle out all to no effect.
Pine martins are still rare and elusive they are not thriving but seem to have recovered to earlier population sizes.
Red Squirel is still not that big as the grey is the most dominant and carries a pox.
Bumble bees are down again this year for the third year in a row, habitat loss, fragmentation, Isolation, inbreeding, pests and diseases both imported and spread by honey bees. use of chemicals.
On the subject of chemicals did you hear your man on the radio telling gardeners to use insecticides to protect fruit trees from pests and they have no effect on polllinating insects, did not know insecticides could discriminate between pollinators and so called pests.
Red deer have a problem with inbreeding and there is money iinvolved there too, last year went down for the rut and there were loads 1000+ in the town of killarney how many can that habitat support anyway. (My 1000+ is a bit like the O Donovan brothers estimate as to how many people turned up in Cork to welcome them home I cannot count but there were lots, too many to count)
I hate cats no discussion.

We have pine martens in the wood near us. I read in this weeks local paper that the deer in south Wicklow have been migrating into north Wexford. No reason given other than sightings are on the increase.

Don't forget to add homo sapiens Brexitensis to the list of endangered species?

Not scorned T, just not rising to the bait.

A while back, friend who lives on the outskirts of town looked up from her kitchen sink to see a red deer stag at the window. Don't know who was more surprised! Shocked We seem to have a very healthy population of red deer in this area - at least they would be if they'd stop leaping out in front of cars.

My concern would be for butterflies. We used to get all sorts now it's just the wretched cabbage white. As for ladybirds, in our 18 years in this house I have seen ONE.

BTW it wasn't cats that killed our neighbours chickens or friends ducks and chickens. It was a pine martin on both occasions. Not even the SAME pine martin (too far apart) unless, of course, he had a bike.?

One of the reasons, apparently, for the return of the red squirrel to habitats from which it had vanished, is the increase in pine marten numbers - seems they are seeing off the grey squirrels.
