i have screwed plastic plates underneath as a temp measure and they land on them and gobble up the otherwisw waste niger seed. I agree for such tiny birds they create such a mess (god bless em) I have a gang of eight and they cost me a fortune. However my fav bird is the little wren that darts around the waterfall but is too damm quick for me to photograph.
Also earlier this year we had a lovely looking rat but it was soon joined by some others so I had to remove them
