GW TV programme - Monty, how are the Robins in your shed?

GW TV programme - Monty, how are the Robins in your shed? It was lovely to see the Robin perched on the Roberts radio waiting to visit the fledgings.

Thank you for the feedback. The majority of the responses are "too small".

Perhaps, INTERMEDIA and GW Editor could revert back to its previous size and reduce the nefarious text/copy printed on it?

Hygiene and Birds (including Great Tits)

According to the BBC NEWS website (today, 22.11.2012 in the Environment section), our garden birds are being affected by an avian pox that leaves the creatures with swollen lesions.

Spread from bird to bird (originally from insects coming to the UK), it is advised that WE can HELP by cleaning bird feeders, boxes (check for tenants first!) and bird-baths with soapy-water. It may help.

 

December 2013 Issue - The Calendar

Every year it is with excitement that we unwrapped the cellophane of the December issue to view the following year's (free) Calendar. For years now, this has been has had pride of place on the kitchen's noticeboard. However, the 'recession' has, like Ash die-back, affected the once magestic Calendar - it's got smaller. Titchy.

We would gladly pay an extra £2.00 for the December issue if the publishers would revert back to the size of the 2012 (and prior) Calendar for the next year's printing (2014 Calendar).

Sorry, GW Publishers, you've made a mistake this year with the size reduction.

I'm not too sure I can discuss the GW TV show here but I think it would be pertinent for the producers to work on a SPECIAL EDITION for next year about the Ash Die-Back issue.

Travelling from Northern Europe and tracking the virus to the UK, and what we, gardeners, should do (i.e. do we have to burn all leaf mould from this & last year?), and interviewing the DEFRA Minister. Just a thought.

Why the new (disappointing) size for the Calendar?
