Remember to wash your bird feeders

Hi pansyface, Have you contacted RSPB or BTO for advice?

Remember to wash your bird feeders

Posted: Yesterday at 20:48

Hi

Just a reminder to wash your bird feeders before putting them out. They can harbour bacteria, that can be lethal. According to the BTO the finch population has declined by 95% since 1995. One contribution to this is a disease called, 'trichomonosis' which is a microscopic parasite. It's more active in the autumn, and is a slow death for the bird, they struggle to swallow food and drink.

If you wish to know more, please contact the British Trust for Ornithology.

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

My favorite author is Scott Marini and his Ben Hope series, nine in total. Its like Jason Bourne meets Indiana Jones

The great tidy up has begun, and already I have lost two pair of scissors and a trowel. No idea where they are. They are down as MIA!

What items do you keep mislaying, and do you every find them?

now I have seen everything!

I was in my local GC today, and on demo was a remote lawnmower. I kid you not. They had it on some artificial grass and it was going up and down. It looked like a great big green ladybird. I think it was made by Viking?

Petrol Lawnmower any suggestion.

Thanks Alan for the spec. I will have a look at this one and Honda that others have mentioned. Take care

Hi All

I'm think of getting a petrol lawnmower, the electric one is really not suitable for our garden now. I have been holding off for a while, but now is the time to hang up its power cable. What makes would you suggest?

Also, I wish they would stop kidding us that the Sunday show is live when we all know they continue filming once the the live transmission stops. We like to pick a a woman in the front row of the audience and remember what she is wearing. You will notice she is wearing the same item on Sunday night. No woman wears the same outfit twice. Also the BBC would not get everyone dressed up for a half hour show.
