This is what Spring and Summers all about, very good photo.

Not seen to many young birds where I live this year, I think the cats must have got them.

Superb Edward.

Probably Mick, but more likely down to the ever increasing numbers of urban foxes, magpies and squirrels that take not only the young birds, but also the eggs.

Don't start me off, Mick...But you and Cyril's right, cats do play a big part in the reduction of garden birds...it would help if cat owners put a bell round its collar.

I dont know why charity's like RSPCA dont sell little bells so cat lovers can put them on there cats.

Exactly Mick, come on you cat owners, buy a small bell and fix it to their collars. End of the day, we all love our garden birds.

I don't like it the same anyone else does, but cats are only doing what is a natural instinct to them, likewise as foxes, magpies and squirrels etc, cat collars can prove to be lethal when they snag onto something, anyhow cats are animals and not bikes.

Right again Cyril, that's my point, put a bell on em. Birds will be able to hear them.
