Tis’ the season to feed wild birds
Now that the first frosts and snow have landed, chances are that home owners are thinking more about wild birds. These manufacturers have a range of products and good ideas on how to encourage people to feed wild birds, and hopefully convert them to year-round feeders.
You couldn't make it up!

A serious case of cat flue
A cat has been rescued after being discovered stuck 40 foot up a disused chimney in Brighton.
Pepper the year-old cat is thought to have crept into a neighbour’s home during building work and snuck into a chimney stack on the second floor after a hole was knocked into it for a loft extension.
The adventurous puss lost his way after clambering part way up the chimney stack.
Luckily the owner of the house, Felix Elkin, had spotted Pepper prowling around the loft and suspected he was stuck up the chimney when he heard shuffling noises.
He alerted Pepper’s worried owners, who had been delivering leaflets looking for their missing puss, and they tried to lure him out of the chimney with food. When that failed they called the RSPCA to help.
Inspector Tony Woodle, who described the rescue as ‘really unusual’, borrowed some flexible chimney poles to gently nudge Pepper down the chimney and towards the hole where he had got in and he was carefully pulled to safety.
“Pepper’s owners were there during the rescue and were delighted to be reunited with him,” Tony said. “He was very grubby, covered in soot, but otherwise OK.”
Snake makes a fatal boob
A busty model has been bitten on the breast by a snake – but thereptile later died from siliconpoisoning.
The video of the attack on Israeli model Orit Fox has gone viral on the internet, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
The scantily clad, cosmetically-enhanced model was being filmed holding the large snake. But things took a turn for the worst when she tried to lick the snake.
The gesture appeared to upset the reptile and it struck at her.
The snake latched on to her right breast in the nipple area and the woman screamed and initially tried to yank the snake from her breast. But it would not let go, even when a man came to her rescue.
When the snake eventually did let go, the glamour model reportedly needed a tetanus shot – but it was the snake who came off worst as it is believed to have later died from silicon poisoning.
