Hi Fairy    What's the weather like up there now?

Bumblefoot on Chaffinch

Posted: 24/11/2015 at 17:21

It may not be Bumblefoot - there is another viral condition which affects chaffinches causing tumours on the feet


I think the best thing we can do is to keep the feeders regularly cleaned and disinfected.

Recommend a good bird food?

The tits and goldfinches in our garden love sunflower hearts - whereas the robins, dunnocks and wrens go for a mix designed specifically for insectivorous birds who have finer bills, so I have two separate feeders.

I find the ones made by Gardman, RSPB and Notcutts to be equally acceptable to the birds in our garden.

  BL, I had an Exmoor who was the greediest pony alive - I heard that after I sold him to a riding school ('cos he needed more work than we could give him) he walked into an allotment with a child on his back and started eating the cabbages!

We checked the fuse before we took it to the repair place. 

It needed a new power unit

Thought there might be a fair bit of choccy lab there somewhere - which size labradoodle will she be?  They seem to come in the same range of sizes as the poodles don't they?
