Meet Gimpy - so named because if you look closely he/she has a deformed leg. I had always thought he/she was injured in some way. I have fed him/her for a few years on and off. This year he/she has 2 babies and a mate who all turn up for some food. I know you should not feed wild birds but his/her legs seems to be getting worse. I make a special mix up for them - the recipe came from the zoo.
The babies are so funny they make the most amazing noise when they are fed.......... both adult bird feed them.
