I think I've spotted a third Great Tit with what might be the beginnings of this accursed avian pox infection. We're considering doing away with our sunflower seed feeder as I'm concerned that it is the main cause of spreading the disease. My suspicion is that, once infected individuals are around, their reusing it might well rapidly re-infect the feeding ports regardless of washing between fillings. If anyone has any definitive knowledge, I'd be pleased to hear it.

I've posted this apparently healthy individual as much for my own reassurance as anything. It's taken with a new Nikon digiscoping contraption.
