Saint of the day: Saint Mildburga comes from a high achieving family - her mother, aunt and sisters are all also saints. She is the patroness of birds because during her lifetime she was able to convince the birds of the neighbourhood to go easy on the crops until harvest time. Her most impressive achievements came after her death when, in the 11th Century, her grave was rediscovered. Wonderful cures were soon in evidence, including the regurgitation by one pilgrim of a tapeworm of record-setting length.
