Talkback: Garden birds and garden pests

Can anyone tell me why birds are pecking the flower buds of my flowering cherry off the tree and chucking them on the ground, I can't see any insects that would be encouraging them.

I have just noticed some leaf curl on my fan trained peach tree. I live on the East Coast of the Dengie peninsula in Essex. The tree is planted in a sheltered, sunny, South facing position against a fence protecting it from cold N & E wind. We cover it with a layer of fleece at night to protect from frost. Last year (it was newly planted)I sprayed with Bordeaux Mixture and we had no leaf curl to speak of, a couple of leaves which I removed. This year, for various reasons I missed the correct time to spray. Is there anything I can, or should, do now to prevent further infection this year. I have seen Chlorothalonil (Bravo) or copper compound (Kocide), mentioned on an American web site, are they available in UK? and any good Your comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
