It's a great idea Michael. I used to do them with the children when they were little and still do it now using coconut shells or even just plastic pots by putting a piece of plastic coated wire into the container and filling with a similar mix. The wire acts as a hanger and I could put them in amongst trees or shrubs for the little birds to get. Sunflower hearts are good to add too. I've got a small tree I had to cut down recently and I'm going to use a bit of the trunkto do exactly the sort of thing you're doing. If you have some pix it would be great to see them
will the suet attract RATS ??
if not i may have a go but soak the sunflower hearts in some honey water
If you or, importantly, your neighbours see rats at any bird feeding station then stop feeding for a while until they move on - the rats that is, not the neighbours! MJD
I'd rather have the rats than some of the neighbours Michael
Never had an issue with suet James. Usually rats only start appearing if too much food is put out on the ground or tables for it to get eaten by the time it's dark.
