It all started when Winifred was working at a care.Sheused to throw out stale bread and buns，and developed such anihterest in the wild birds which accepted her offerings that shestarted taking food along to those in City Square as well. On one occasion，an old lady sitting in the square remarked that the birds could do with a more nutritious diet.SoWinifred began buying corn for them. "In the end.1 was carrying SO much weight and trampings0 far that my feet and arms really ached，”she said.“I triedusing wheeled shoppers，but with the weight of all that cornthey were breaking within weeks！So I splashed out andbought this tricycle." Winifred has come across other wild-life on her travels，too."I，stop to feed families of hedgehogs which I found at the side of the railway near the park，"she said. Despite her love of birds，she’d never want to keep onebecause she can’t bear seeing them caged. Disaster struck recently when a car reversed into her parked trike，damaging its wheels.But two local business men，hearing of her activities，decided kindly to help by repla-cing the wheels for her. So now the"Bird Woman of Leeds"is back in action a-gain，doing the j ob she loves best——caring for the host offeathered friends who have come to rely qn her.
