We have many lovely birds visiting our garden, but in the last few weeks we have seen a parent robin, a dunnock and a young chaffinch with bald/nearly bald heads.
Is this mites? Is there anything at all we can do to help them, prevent it in others and treat it? Is this a problem in other people's gardens at the moment too?
