Small apple trees might be useful, if you have room. The apples this year were very small and late (not a good summer here in the Highlands) but the birds are very busy eating all the windfall apples. Birds seen recently: siskin, chaffinch, greefinch, bluetit, coletit, field sparrows, pheasant, starlings (lots), crows, blackbirds, hedge sparrows, house sparrows. Lots of seagulls at themoment. The house martins have departed, we hope to see them again next year. NOT good gardening conditions this year in this area, but the birds have been really good.
