best kind of bird feeder?

Posted: 29/05/2013 at 19:01

I moved house a few months ago and I also purchased the Duncraft squirrel proof feeders and they are amazing! Whenever they climb onto them their weight blocks off the food. Also works when bigger birds try and eat the food! Really recommended, they are expensive but will save you money in the long run!

I bought two "mini" ones and can assure you they're quite big and heavy! I also bought the peanut one, again excellent quality. You just need to make sure the squirrels won't be able to reach it from another branch, they are really smart!

 

I got them from this website, cheapest I could find back then

Blanket Weed

Sorry for bumping this topic! It's best if you try and avoid getting any blanket weed/ algue by adding 50g of straw per square metre (it doesn't matter how deep the pond is) every few months. I buy the straw pads off ebay!

If you were an amphibian, would you want to live here?

Make sure that you have plenty of plants growing between the rocks for them to grow over, for newts its very easy to get burned in the summer as the rocks soak up all the heat from the sun. I'm sure you get plenty of wildlife into the pond but it will take a couple of months, depening how accessable the garden is for them.
