Talkback: Autumn downpours

Watering raised beds can be a very exhausting business!  As they say "every cloud has a silver lining" and I will try and remember your positive thinking when it's pouring with rain.

I'm another soft squirrel feeder too Lunarz!  Our regular is particularly fond of monkey nuts in their shell.  I haven't tried one of those cage feeders sorry but I have got a little wooden bird house which I put sunflowers seeds in and the tits love going in there to find a treat.  I put a false bottom inside it as it was too deep for them in the beginning - how soft is that!  One blue tit likes it in there so much he has often spent the night in there!  Good luck - wildlife gardening can be quite a challenge

Oh - it looks as if the picture hasn't worked!  It's one of those cage types with the feeder inside to protect the small birds from predators.  Only the little birds can get inside to feed.

I wonder if this type of feeder would deter those pesky pigeons?

I knew she was once engaged to Roxy Music singer Bryan Ferry.  If they had ever married she would have  been Jerry Ferry

What's the weather like in your area?

A beautiful warm sunny day here in South Wales.

Shrinking Violet - went down to Swansea Beach and had lovely views across to you too!

Good point Daintiness!  I somehow wrongly thought that the seed tray attachment would catch the bits

Stately as a galleon?

You could try melting some lard to mix with the seed and put this into a yogurt pot which has a hole in the base with a string threaded through.  When it sets you can hang it up and only the smaller birds can feed from this.  You could also try just putting some of the larger bits in the seed mix (like the corn) and some other scraps on the floor and hopefully the pigeons will fill up on this first!
