It's really hard to say from just a picture. How does she treat the wing when preening? Is there a specific place that she gnaws around on a lot? Has she always done this or is it new?
That's a good question regarding the preening - from what I know she treats it no differently and I've seen her preening there 'normally', at least, what I would call normal anyway.
She's done it for as long as I can remember, pretty much from when we first had her. I don't think any one thing started it off.

This will produce a few laughs, but I thought budgies always moult! These always seem to be losing feathers, they're absolutely everywhere. How can I tell a moulting phase, is that where they lose larger feathers then?
Sorry for the daft question, perhaps a trip to the vet is the wisest thing though, problem is it's out of town and we don't drive, it's a nightmare.
