It was actually at Elveden Forest. We live so close the the Centerparcs at Nottingham that we actually never go there. It doesn't feel like getting away from it all - too many people we know that work there!
I agree with culling in cases where they are coming into conflict with red squirrels or forf other conservation concerns, but since there aren't any reds there I don't understand why they are culling nor how they can cull a species they are actiely encouraging people to feed by supplying food for them! Supplementary feeding will help increase the squirrel population, preventing feeding (i.e. by NOT stocking the food) would be a far more effective way of keeping numbers down than feeding them and then culling because numbers are an issue.

if they are out of control then is there any easy way to cull them? i don't like to think of any thing being needlessly killed. they should be reported for selling squirrel food when they are killing them.
