So pleased to see that it appears to be the picture of health, must have had a good summer .

Happily scoffing tasties inside the ground feeder cage. Excluded birds not happy.
Don't think the fledgies have ever seen one !!

This morning, I looked out and the first thing I saw was the plastic bag right in the middle of my garden . So I go out to investigate and find the bag empty, 2 of the coconut suets buried in one small, recently planted shrub, and 3 are gone missing!!! I looked around for the signs of digging but don't see any other. The squirrel stole them!! Bloody thief
Edit: I assumed its a squirrel because I have them around and caught them on the feeders or burying things before, but on the second inspection of the garden I found some droppings that look like fox's so I'm thinking now could it have been a fox? I mean, the coconut half is quite big thing to carry
