      simple answer would be that I don't know . However I suspect it might be a compatability issue between the sites software & that which your phone is using.  which is an issue that does periodically happen on the web . It might mean that the sites software needs upgrading to sort the issue which would mean Shaun contacting the service provider . But he would need to know the make & brand of your phone . So either message him or let me know & I'll contact him

    from that picture apart from being a little scruffy around the head & neck he looks OK . However pictures can be deceptive . Also it would be interesting to know a few more details as to how he's been reared especially as I suspect that you might be lacking in experience of teils . Also 3 month old hand reared teils have a habit of going into remission & requiring further hand rearing if they leave home too early

  7. Hi Shaun, It's Gary from Zebra Finch Forum. Is it the same process as before for booking society/club space?
  8. there are still a few tables available in the Feathered Flyer club area. refreshments are available and a catching aviary great place to meet friends and catch up closing date is 31st January www.staffordspringbirdshow.co.uk
  9. i have put it on bird trak
  10. Hi Colin, did not se any problem adding a bit of information regarding the species as it was obvious name clarification had some doubts. It will not stop anyone claiming it is their bird. Correct information is valuable to all. We could do with more on this site. James.
  11. think the real question is who has lost this ?? hen Pekin Robin , or does anybody know whose ring number the bird is wearing ?
  12. Hi, the Red billed Ieiothrix ( Pekin Robln ) has two close relations, the Silver eared Mesia, which has about five sub species and the Sumatran Mesia, the Silver eared Mesia is being successfully bred in the UK by a few fanciers. James.
  13. Many thanks to everyone for all your input. The bird is the Red-billed Leiothrix and I managed to photograph it today. It has violet ring on its right leg and by taking many pictures from different angles it seems to have a number 402BOE. I wonder if this can help shed some light on its possible origin.
  14. that's interesting as I was not aware Pekin Robins were sometimes called nightingales & there is a 2nd species called the Japanese-- nightingale Japanese bush warbler (Horornis diphone), I've emailed Mick for clarification
  15. Hi, Brian,. The Pekin Robin, was one of many species of bird that man in his wisdom or lack of, decided to try and introduce to Europe, obviously it's attractive colours and lovely song were appealing, most attempts did not materialise, but a few areas in France, Spain and Tuscany in Italy were successful and small flocks still live and breed there. This species has several names the Red-billed Leiothrix regarded as its official name, other are the Pekin Robin, Pekin nightingale, Japanese nightingale and Chinese nightingale, I dare say Pekin Robin is easier to remember, the other names relate to the eastern areas of origin, Nightingale for its song I presume. Hope that helps explain. James.
  16. why do you think the are japanese nightingals pekin robins are liveing wild in north east france . pekin robins are called pekin nightingals by some
  17. most prob a escaped from a aviary .i lost a virginian cardinal back in the summer it was seen nr. swansea for weeks after if any one has seen it in the last weeks or 2
  18. Hi, I think the odds are it has escaped from an aviary or birdroom. There is established wild flocks in l believe a part of North Eastern France but I doubt very much an odd bird would make the journey to the UK. James.
  19. I agree that it's unlikely to be a wild bird & have posted this onto Foriegn softbill site where a few more may see / know of any in the UK
  20. A Japanese Nightingale has turned up in Herefordshire (I am the county recorder), and we would like to know if anyone does keep this species in the UK, and if there is any way that we could find out if someone had lost one. I think it unlikely that it is a wild bird, but you never know. Many thanks, Michael Colquhoun, Recorder for Herefordshire. mickcolquhoun@gmail.com
