Theft – please can you help?
A thief has visited the site and stolen 2 nut feeders and 2 seed feeders. It seems that some people can be very mean and selfish. On Wednesday 24th February all the feeders were still there at lunch time; but by next morning the 4 feeders were missing. If anyone saw anything unusual during that period perhaps you can let us know. Please contact info@weirwood.me.uk thank you.
