I use Gimp too. Colours - hue/saturation - Magenta from the palette,

I tried it, and it wouldn't do anything. My fringing only responds
to this treatment if I choose blue from the palette. Am I doing
something wrong?

No. Sometimes I also have to choose blue to remove the fringing. Why that is, I don't know because it appears as purple.

BTW, those pics are not cropped as I was close to the animal. I
always set NR low. I know what you mean about cropping for birds;
often I'm too far away, even with the TCon, so the crops are only of
sufficient quality for ID.

Can you try cropping out a small backlit section, about 300 pixels
wide? What I'm trying to establish here is whether my FZ30 is worse
than other FZ30s. My images look ok when not cropped, because the
fringes are fairly narrow. This could be why all the reports I read
say fringing is minimal - i.e. I expected too much.

If you send me an email, I'll send you the original file of that second squirrel shot.
