Just to let anyone who is interested know that Limpy (see post below!) was nowhere to be seen today. All the other birds were here but no Limpy, so I decided that he must have either been so traumatised that he pegged out, or his leg had been bleeding more badly than I thought.
Anyway, the good news is that I spotted him sitting on the windowsill late this afternoon looking none the worse and at least his right foot was not being cut into anymore. Hopefully he will be able to perch okay even if he loses more of the toes on his other foot. I gave him some peanuts to aid his recovery! It made me smile anyway! Lindsay
