To feed or not?

Posted: 03/03/2014 at 13:08

Hi everyone, no doubt people will have varied views but I am in a dilemma as to whether I should feed birds.  I love all the birds and have wildlife habitats for hedgehogs, frogs and toads and insects but as I have a young cat I am not sure it is fair to encourage birds by putting out food. Some people say just use hanging feeders rather than ground feeding. What does everyone else think, should I just enjoy birds in the surrounding areas? We have had cats before but one was disabled and one was too old to bother!

Any of mine that rot are small but if they grow they tend to carry on successfully. I have quite a few from only two plants and obviously have to pick them before they get too big.  Can someone tell me if they can be frozen or how else to store them as we cannot eat them all quickly enough? Thanks.

Talkback: Hedgehog spotting

Hi I am new to the forum.  I also love hedgehogs and have been lucky enough to have heard and seen a pair in my back garden in mating ritual, grunting and dancing about, so sweet! I have not however seen babies yet but I have an old wine box with a hole at each end under a bench at the end of my garden. This was used last year as I had put some leaves in it but noticed fresh grass at the entrance. There are quite a few hedgehogs in this area and they can easily access my garden as my gates have a small hole cut in the bottom to allow my cat a quick getaway if anything chases her.
