Bird feeders

Magpies land on mine but can't figure out how to get in - hours of amusement for me! 

They'll be as heavy- if not heavier - than squirrels too. 

It's also getting a roof when I alter it, to keep the little chicksters dry in the horrible wet winter months.

Lovely Steve. What a view 'the folks who live on the hill' must have 

LP - I think you're onto something. Perhaps everyone could take a pic of a nice view somewhere near where they live.

I intend making it more robust next year B3. I'll make a proper timber frame etc. I expect you could use brackets though. Squirrels aren't that heavy though.  It was a 'needs must' situation - the starlings are more of a problem than squirrels here. The little birds had no chance of any food once they got stuck in.

I don't feed peanuts either. There are peanut nibs in the food/seed mix I use.

I rarely get squirrels coming in now - and there's plenty of them around here

Dover for the continent, Eastbourne for the incontinent, is it not?


That made me laugh out loud!

Fixed to the fence B3. It's not very heavy. The hook is just for hanging the feeders from, although the top is made of netting, rather than the wire mesh the rest of it is made from, and  the hook helps to hold that in place at the back

Gorgeous Steve. That station is something else! A real piece of modern art. 

I don't think you should feel guilty about putting them on the camera thread either - it's what it's for, as well as any techie help that David can give us

Yes - mine! 


Same principle as flowers describes above, but big enough to accomodate a fat feeder too...and I don't mean the great tit
