What is the importance of Hygiene and Garden Bird Feeding.<br/>The importance of practising hygiene when feeding garden birds was emphasised once again in a recent scientific paper in the &ldquo;Veterinary Record&rdquo; (18th August 2012).&nbsp; Entitled Chlamydiosis in British songbirds and written by veterinary surgeon Katie Colville MRCVS (currently Veterinary and Wildlife Health Officer at the Wildfowl &amp; Wetlands Trust (WWT) at Slimbridge, Glos) and her colleagues, the paper reported the disease avian chlamydiosis (&lsquo;psittacosis&rsquo;) in British songbirds.<br /> <br /> Chlamydiosis is caused by the intracellular bacterium Chlamydia (previously Chlamydophila) psittaci . Birds are natural hosts of C psittaci, and a wide range of avian species is susceptible to infection. C psittaci can cause severe disease in humans (in other words, it is a &ldquo;zoonosis&rdquo;) where captive psittacines (parrots and their allies) have most often been implicated as the source of infection. C psittaci infection is prevalent in wild pigeons in Britain but its prevalence in songbirds is unknown.<br /> <br /> Ten songbird mortality incidents were investigated. In each of these chlamydiosis was suspected on the basis of the species &ldquo;assemblage&rdquo; (sick or dead robins and/or tits and/or dunnocks) and the finding post mortem of an enlarged liver and/or spleen in affected birds.<br /> <br /> Chlamydia-specific PCR tests were conducted and as a result Chlamydia sp. infection was diagnosed in birds from seven of the incidents.<br /> <br /> All the Chlamydia sp. positive incidents reported in this account occurred at locations where wild birds were being provided with supplementary food. Six of the seven sites were private gardens.<br /> <br /> This report should not discourage members of the public, including those who read this blog, from providing food for garden birds.&nbsp; If practised properly, this can be very beneficial &ndash; both to the birds that thereby receive supplementary feeding and to those who put out the food and enjoy watching the avian visitors that are attracted to it.&nbsp; However, hygiene is important and this comprises:<br /> <br /> 1) regular cleaning of bird-tables and other feeding areas<br /> <a href="https://www.haiths.com/haiths-pro/hygiene-essentials/"><br /> <img alt="Click to buy Hygiene" src="http://www.haiths.com/images/blog/haiths/Click-to-buy-Bannner-Hygiene.jpg" /></a><br /> <br /> 2) providing food of high quality (Haith&rsquo;s can advise on its superclean diets)<br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.haiths.com/haiths-pro/bird-food/"> <div style="text-align: center;"><img alt="SuperClean bird foods" src="http://www.haiths.com/images/blog/haiths/Click-here-to-view-our-SUPERCLEAN-BIRD-FOODS.jpg" /></a></div> <br /> 3) not overfeeding birds, because they need to look for food in the garden and hedgerows, not to depend solely on human intervention. 0 Kipepeo Workshop, Kenya, February 2018.

The Kipepeo Project involves communities who live on the margins of the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest. Local people rear butterflies of certain species, using eggs from females that have been collected in the forest.

This arrangement not only assists local people to earn an income but also provides an incentive for them to protect the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest and its various endemic and endangered species of fauna and flora.</span><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">The Workshop in February was organised under the auspices of the National Museums of Kenya (NMK) and was run under the direction of the staff of Kipepeo and Mombasa Butterfly House (MBH). The tutors and demonstrators were Mr Hussein Aden, Mr Laban Njoroge, Professor John E Cooper and Mrs Margaret E Cooper. This intensive training day was primarily intended for the staff of Kipepeo and the Mombasa Butterfly House but it also attracted some others who work with Invertebrates or have an interest in their care in captivity and their conservation in the wild. These included two Kenyan registered veterinary surgeons involved in the licensing of animals and animal products.<span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; border-width: 1pt; border-style: none; border-color: windowtext; padding: 0cm;">&nbsp;A total of 41 people participated in the day&#39;s activities, including 25 involved locally in the &quot;farming/breeding&quot; of butterflies.</span></span><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">In his opening remarks, Hussein Aden gave a welcome to Kipepeo and the workshop. John and Margaret Cooper then led the preliminary session, in which the hosts, tutors and registrants introduced themselves.&nbsp; Amongst those welcomed as guests were Dr Ian Gordon, now resident in Rwanda, who had started the Kipepeo Project in 1993. He outlined its history, aims and achievements to date. Another invited guest was Mr Mike Clifton, a very experienced entomologist who has lived and worked in Kenya for many years.</span><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; line-height: 105%; text-align: center;"><img alt="Image 1" src="http://www.haiths.com/images/blog/haiths_pro/P1170818-(002).jpg" /></p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; line-height: 105%; text-align: center;">A local lady registrant demonstrates handling and examination of an insect</p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; line-height: 105%;"><br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">The bulk of the morning consisted of lectures, delivered in a mixture of English and Swahili. The topics covered were &quot;Introduction to invertebrates &quot;(Laban Njoroge), &quot;Legal and ethical aspects of keeping invertebrates in captivity&quot; (Margaret E Cooper), &quot;Invertebrate health&quot; (John E Cooper), and a description of the work of Kipepeo and the Mombasa Butterfly House (Hussein Aden). The last of these was combined with an opportunity for the farmers/breeders to discuss their work and problems they encounter in respect of butterfly health.</span><br /> &nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; line-height: 105%; text-align: center;"><img alt="Image 2 " src="http://www.haiths.com/images/blog/haiths_pro/P1170819-(002).jpg" /><br /> John Cooper explains the principles of dissection in diagnostic work<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0.0001pt; line-height: 105%;"><br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">The afternoon comprised practical work. Participants looked at live butterflies and viewed enclosures under the guidance of Hussein Adenand other Kipepeo staff and with input from Ian Gordon and Mike Clifton. This tour of the facilities was followed by a &quot;hands-on&quot; session in which Laban Njoroge and John Cooper demonstrated the gross examination of different stages of Lepidoptera and taught methods of dissection and investigation - including the taking of samples from butterflies for microscopy. Portable field equipment was used for this work, to illustrate how such procedures do not initially depend on sophisticated laboratory facilities.</span><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">The day finished with a discussion period, after which a group photo was taken (see above) and certificates were presented by Margaret Cooper to all registrants and those who assisted in&nbsp;<span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; border-width: 1pt; border-style: none; border-color: windowtext; padding: 0cm;">the organisation</span>.</span><br /> <br /> <span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">This workshop at Kipepeo appears to have been a success. Much was learned by all parties. It was almost certainly the first time in Kenya, probably in Africa, that such a workshop, discussing the health of butterflies and linking this with welfare, conservation and sustainable use, had taken place. Discussions are underway as to how what was achieved in February could be developed and enhanced, not only so that it might directly benefit the work of Kipepeo and the Mombasa Butterfly House but with a view to its contributions to the scope of Kenyan entomology and the promotion of the country&rsquo;s ecosystem health. One proposal is to organise a more in-depth, scientific, training session on invertebrate health and diseases in Nairobi,<span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; border-width: 1pt; border-style: none; border-color: windowtext; padding: 0cm;">&nbsp;probably in the Entomology Section of the National Museums of Kenya.
