– NEVER feed any bird a diet of wild bird seeds!
– It may take time and patience to train your bird to eat this form of food, but the benefits to your bird’s health and longevity far outweigh the negatives of the transition.
– When introducing new foods to your bird, feed new foods first thing in the morning since birds are hungriest when they wake up.
– Do not overwhelm your bird by suddenly dumping a handful of tablescraps in the cage. Begin with small quantities.
Sheikh Hamdan, the UAE’s finance minister, owns the Norfolk-based Shadwell Estate Company stud farm, as well as Kingwood House Stables. Over the past two years the businesses have received £294,334 through the single payment scheme. A representative of Shadwell Estate Company said it had no comment, when contacted by Unearthed .
When contacted by Unearthed , Saker Estates and Pegasi Management Company declined to comment.
But Unearthed has found two further companies in receipt of subsidy that are owned through the same offshore companies and share directors with the Sheikh’s other UK businesses. Saker Estates Ltd received £1.07m in single payments over the past two years, while Pegasi Management Company received £426,303.

The vast majority of the subsidy they received – £896,008 – came from the controversial single payment scheme, which largely rewards landowners for simply owning land, rather than paying farmers to invest in environmental or other “public good” measures.
As well as claiming taxpayer subsidies through his stud farms, another company owned by Sheikh Mohammed, Smech Management Company, benefitted from £51,203 in single area payments over the past two years – and £110,301 in overall farm subsidies.
The Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates has pocketed almost £1m in farming subsidies over the past two years for the UK arm of his racehorse breeding empire, an Unearthed investigation has found.

That’s pretty much how it happened. Crundwell started working for the city part time as a high school student and later became city comptroller, a position she held for almost 30 years.
In addition to all of Crundwell’s travel and pay for veterinarians and other employees, “most of the money she stole went through the horses … literally, in the form of hay, feed, and then out of the horses in the form of manure,” Wojdylo said.
In a way, Crundwell still works for Dixon: The city is garnishing the pay she gets from her work in federal prison in Waseca, Minn. On average, she earns about $65 a month.
