  1. The number of town pigeons in Germany's towns and cities has fallen dramatically over the past decade, with the Berlin population down by two thirds from its 2001 level.   Figures from the nature protection society Nabu say there are only around 10,000 town pigeons left in the capital, down from up to 30,000 thought to have been there in 2001. And although there are no recent figures in Frankfurt, officials say that complaints about them have declined over recent years.   One of the causes is building renovation, which is undertaken without any consideration for providing space for birds to nest, Lars Lachmann from Nabu told the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper at the weekend.   Click to read the full article.

  4. A test by professional coffee tasters tried 31 kinds of coffee and gave brands from discounters Lidl and Aldi top marks, Bild reported Saturday.   The Bellarom Gold and Markus Gold brands from Lidl and Aldi won the taste-off against more expensive organic and fair-trade brands.   These coffee brands were also the best value in the test and each cost Euro 2.49 for 500 grams, Hubertus Primus, a tester with the Stiftung Warentest foundation, which organized the battle of the beans.   Twenty of the 31 brands tested received the grade of "good." Some brands fared much worse though. Tchibo's Gran Cafe, Tip Gold from Metro and the A&P brand from Kaisers all got the score of mediocre for "musty" flavouring. The Gala Nr. 1 brand from coffee house Eduscho got the worst score. Testers said it tasted of wet paper.   0 words remaining. Click to read the full article.
