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.

Re: Unwell starling

That's a bit like a blue tit I had on my windowsill earlier in the year.

Unfortunately it's the circle of life. There isn't much you can do to help.

Re: BIRD FEEDING

Same here. My feeders have been very quiet while the sun was out. I guess it's easier for them to find active caterpillars, daddy long legs and the like. But when it cools down they're more likely to come looking for the birdy equivalent of a McDonalds drive through! :) I've got a nice little family...

Re: THE FIRMAMENT

Cloud as far as the eye can see so it's a no go for me. I've seen one before so I'm not too gutted but I might do the January one even though it'll be at 4am!

Re: THE FIRMAMENT

We've had more than a month of clear skies and now we want it to be clear for the eclipse it looks like we might be thwarted by rain. I'm going to go out and have a watch of it though. Might get lucky. There's another in January if it doesn't work out.

Re: FLEDGLINGS 2018

Had a baby blue tit on my feeder yesterday being fed by a parent. Lots of twittering and wing flapping. FEED ME! :)
