good choice it was will be waiting for them in the next few days will get to see what they look like in the packs and testing them on the wood sometimes looks total different - found I have a sample still of the beech blue

Dove does visit my garden sometimes, this one is a smaller dove and a whole load of other small bird came in for there food - blue tits, sparrows, starlings and great tit, only filled up the feeding tube the other day food is going down quick at min they must all be hungury

not sure if it is free p+p all the time before it has not been a few pounds then normally maybe they changed it much better
