What stripped my plum tree buds?

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 23:31

Last year my 4 year old plum tree was stripped of many of its buds, leaves and new growth one day in Spring. Some thin branches were also damaged, suggesting a heavy 'body' (or two) broke them. I suspect pigeons, as we have a lot which visit our garden. We also have frequent visiting bullfinches, but imagine they would not have wreaked the havoc we were annoyed to find. Any suggestions on how  to protect this year's growth?

Spotted honey bee and bumble today, whilst chopping back my Epimedium, near to Pulmonaria.

None yet in Leicester - though a couple of males have been spotted waiting at the bottom of the pond. Hope it warms up soon and encourages the females to arrive! Fingers crossed!
