Helping to spread the word, just read on this thread on the European Bonsai Forum that Alex E in Wales has had some trees stolen.
Please keep an eye out for these in the UK and I hope whoever has them sees this post and realises that 200 – 300 bonsai people from the UK read this blog every day. We are watching! Hope you get caught ❗
If I hear any more I’ll update, or if you know any more, give me a shout and I’ll add it.
Update: Trees actually stolen from a show! Here is a few words from Alex taken from this Thread on IBC.Please also keep an eye out for the others mentioned.

Take the hand of another and sing for the wings of a dove!
Hey! If Peter Warren can slip in numerous song quotes and links to Youtube videos, then so can bloody I 🙂
Madness I tell you!
I had the pleasure of watching this collared Dove from my computer window all morning. It is obviously building a nest in a neighbour’s Leylandii. It didn’t care a jot if I was watching it prance around the trees looking for twigs. It did get rather confused by a bit of bonsai wire that resulted in a tug of war for a few minutes 😉
Walk in the woods Giant Bird!
Leave the apples alone!
Twinkle in the eye
Oooh! Shiny twig
Ah feck that
this one will do 🙂
Interesting fact, growing up and having a love for bird watching, I never saw these Collared Doves. They started to spread into Europe from Asia and were first sighted in the UK in the 50’s and now have a extensive population in urban areas.
