Mixture of gooseberry sawfly and pigeons jumping on them eating the fruit?  Can you take a photo?

I think it is a double,whammy of sawfly and mildew.  I would prune to allow air into the cemtre of the bush.....good time now.....and give a generous feed,of fish blood and bone.  A winter wash in autumn, after new leaves have gone, will help too.
