Re: BIRD FEEDING

I filled my feeder with nuts, suet and sunflower seeds 2 weeks ago and they've hardly touched it. I think they go through phases of eating certain things at certain times depending on the weather. On another day they'd be here every 10 minutes. Curious. I'd love to know what they're eating now inste...

Re: BIRD FEEDING

That's a nice one but doesn't fit where I have mine. I'm in a flat and there's a sort of architectural bar outside the window that I can hang a feeder on so I'm a bit limited by space.

Oh well, the blackbirds will have a feast as they don't come and visit the feeders. The blue tits look a bit confuse...

Re: BIRD FEEDING

haha :) Used to be an old hospital. It was converted in to apartments 20 years ago. When you mix up the feeds it's actually interesting to see what the food preference is. The suet goes first, then the sunflower seeds and the nuts last. It's amazing how they know which one gives them the most energy...

Re: POND LINER

Nice one.

The mud is all the droppings from frogs etc, dead insects and leaves/plant material all falling to the bottom. 20 years of biological detritus :) .

Re: BIRD FEEDING

As it's wet and horrible outside I thought I'd give the birdies a bit of a stripy treat today

Re: Blue Tits

Probably a mite. I see them quite a lot on my feeders.

Speaking of which, my first bluey fledglings have turned up today :)
