Well last Sunday 20th May i had a busy day too busy, with trying to get all my birds fed and watered then go to Gravesend to collect a female Banded pitta kindly on breeding loan then onto Southend , when i got home i had a check around my birds i looked into there food dishes and found that the Red throated barbets had not touched there food ! so i looked in there aviary and could not see them then i realised that i had not put there water container on properly and to make matters worse because it was a hot day i left the safety door open so it didnt get too hot and both the male and female were gone....there have been no reported sightings of them.

Sorry to hear that Peter. It's what we all dread happening and it could so easily happen to all of us.

I have had a run of similar events , lost a female bearded reedling, female black redstart both were in the safety porch but I didn't check properly .( I know that they are not as rare or valuable as the barbets

Can you try playing a recording of the barbets ?
