I disagree with the thought that you can keep feeders up in Spring/ Summer. I have , for the first time, and , reluctantly, took down my feeders. To my amazement , i have had just the same, if not more , variety's of birds ,on the lawn and hedges. This experiment was hard to implement , but i am reaping the benefit at the moment.
Regarding the Box to attract Blackbirds etc, would not that be prone to Squirrels, and Magpies?
