From BBC News :
'Researchers at the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) are concerned that garden bird feeders could be putting birds at risk.
A 13-year study has found that the salmonella infection can build up on feeders and then spread among birds.
The study revealed that greenfinches and house sparrows appeared to be particularly vulnerable to the disease.
Bird lovers are being advised to disinfect feeders regularly to minimise the risk of infection.'
Presumably a mild solution of Bleach would do the trick, but to remain environmentally friendly does anyone have any ideas ?
