    Could take it to a wildlife sanctuary if no one comes forward?

    I think its quite impressive that you had an ornamental birdcage and seed ready in case some random budgie flew into the house.

    Well done.

    Can we have a eurogamer poll to name the budgie ? I vote for either Spam or Wimbleton.

    We had two ornamental cages in fact, this is what happens when ones girlfriend used to manage a charity shop and also likes ornamental gubbins. I went and bought the seed from the pet shop round the corner, Iím not that prepared.

    Itís weird having a new creature in the house. I donít like seeing birds in cages so itís likely to ďescapeĒ tomorrow. Poor little aussie bastard.

    It absolutely must be named.

    That way you will feel more heartless when you get rid of it.

    is it girl or boy budgie ?

    The girl has the brown bit where its nostrils are, the boy blue.

    The local vet are going to take her, check for ID, and either return to the owner or try and rehome her

    Don't say that. Smoothpete is a hero and is going to save the little mite.

    In my opinion budgies make great pets. They have lots of character, can do tricks and funny stuff. They don't make a huge mess and aren't expensive to keep.

    I dropped her off at the vet this morning. If no-one claims her in a week them a mate of mine who keeps birds (which I was unaware of) will adopt her. So yeah, all good!

    That's brilliant.

    Shame you didn't get to teach it any tricks or swear words.

    Walk around in the garden tonight.

    Maybe with your budgie attracting skills you can score another.

    I'm reminded of that famous Rotten.com image.
    I say reminded - it's burned onto my retinas.

    Ah man, yes. My house is a semi on the corner and the big fuck off conker tree opposite scatters leaves in the doorway for months and months.

    So, I'm now in possession of an insect house, hedgehog home and a frog clay house pot thingy. Haven't deployed them yet, but I'm looking into discreet cameras etc.. for monitoring purposes. Anyone done similar? I'm thinking Springwatch-esque. My girls flipped out when they saw them :D

    Nice! Some birds have finally started using the feeder I put up over the summer, and we get regular visits from a couple of robins (which eat the food) and some grey tits which just seem to want to scatter the seeds everywhere to feed the pigeons! :confused:

    We have seeds and meal worms. Seeds not touched... The meal worms replenished twice, eaten by blue tits, coal tits, robins, and even a jay who eats worms that fell on ground (too big for the feeder).
