I have been feeding the birds in my garden for the last couple of years and have seen so many different birds its been an absolutely pleasure. However I noticed the other day that the feeders are now attracting rats, they partiularly like to hang off the peanut feeders and climb the trees to do so.
I have of course removed all the feeders for the moment but as I live on the edge of farmland and neighbours have ducks and chickens I feel I may have a continuous problem.
I just wondered if anyone could suggest planting for the birds to feed on, I know the goldfinches like teasels and I have loads of different varieties of plants in the garden for the butterflies and bees, but I've had loads of different tits, blackbirds, song thrushes, varieties of finches and indeed the woodpecker, robins and so on.
Any ideas please!
Thanks in anticipation
