Why don't the birds visit my feeder?

Posted: 10/01/2017 at 20:49

I was bought a feeding station for Christmas, for the birds of course not me  I too have found the regular seed mix contains lots of wheat, so bought some sunflower hearts, stripey sunflower seeds and a 'Robin mix'. Peanuts are provided too.

A wood pigeon did make me laugh today by standing in the water bowl platform, thereby giving himself access to an adjacent tube feeder.

Thank you nut  I might find a place for it in the garden if it doesn't get too big.

This set itself in a pot and I'm wondering what it could be. I did think blackthorn initially but not sure the leaves are right. PS - picture taken in the dark.

Many hardy perennial seeds require exposure to low temps in order to break dormancy, thus replicating nature. I sowed some sweet woodruff yesterday
