Happy New Year

Phil the Gardener is out today moving our feeders in the garden. Over Christmas there were 2 dead green finches under one of the feeders and I know that they are particularly prone to ecoli. As we've only just cleaned all the feeders with anti bacterial cleanser, we're now moving them to other places in the garden to ensure that if there is any problem that we minimize the risks. Time and time again I hear people saying they dont feed the birds because of all sorts of reasons - sparrowhawks, cat, squirrels, etc etc but it really has been proven that feeding birds is much more beneficial than not - its just a question of minimising the risks and carrying on.
