Re: Blue Tits

Probably a mite. I see them quite a lot on my feeders.

Speaking of which, my first bluey fledglings have turned up today :)

Re: POND LINER

Can you dig a new one elsewhere, new shape and layout (I seem to remember the RSPB have a pond building guide) and then transfer the wildlife over? Then fill in the old one.

Re: Robin

Had a robin site on a railing about 10ft in front of me while I was waiting for kingfishers this morning so rattled a shot off. Probably does quite well from the picnics along the river!

Re: Mouse or young rat?

Welcome

Yeah I agree it's a mouse. Rats have a longer face and smaller ears.

Re: Magpie question

Mostly these parasites are not transmittable to humans. I think gloves are fine and a sensible precaution. I do the same with my feeders.

Re: Magpie question

Welcome to the forum :)

I've seen a similar thing on a blue tit on my feeders. I suspect it's a mite or worm of some sort.
