Best type of bird feeder for a city garden?

Posted: 25/01/2013 at 07:50

I now live in a city and wish to feed the birds. I already have two metal poles like shepherd's hooks which, in the past in the country, were effective against squirrels. What sort of bird feeders should I now buy that would feed small birds and bigger ones like blackbirds. Also, what feeds, please?

In the meantime the blackbirds have a wonderful time in the birdbath which I unfreeze every morning

Dove - just spent a while trying to find out about who is replacing Andrew Marr and it will be James Langdale (? spelling)

Oh yummy - still tasting the delicious cooked breakfast I have just polished off. All part of the 'losing weight' malarky! At least as far as Slimming World is concerned.

Have set myself the target of losing 4lbs by Saturday when I am off to London for the day - any bets?

Grey and gloomy here but hopefully it will pick up.

Bye for now and happy gardening if that is what you are planning to do

Morning Forkers, hope you are all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed 

Strange .....here in Cambridge we had no rain at all yesterday.....in fact in the afternoon it turned out to be quite sunny and nice.

I find BBC4 has interesting programmes to watch which I did last night. Fascinating one about saving tigers in India/Bhutan which was a cliff hanger so must remember to watch it again next week! Then 'Borgen' which I have decided I am going off. I know it is all about intrigues in the Danish government and very well acted but don't we have enough of our own government's etc intrigues?

Getting up soon to have the ritual cooked Sunday breakfast and then watch the Andrew Marr programme. Really must summon up some energy and plenty of clothes to do a bit of a tidy up in the garden as green bins on Tuesday!

Take care one and all and KEEP WARM

Hehe....not an 'ungodly house' intentionally by the way .....a typo which in fact more or less explains the situation at that time in the morning.

Have already planned a lovely siesta this afternoon because I am very much retired and can do exactly what I like and when I like  Cannot recommend it more highly peeps....retirement I really mean but also a nice siesta is to be recommended, too.

Perhaps back later ....haven't got the strength to do anything in the garden despite the fact that the sun is trying to shine and it seems quite reasonable in the garden from here!

SG, no been here for 30 years (but previously in Italy!). I wanted Sunflower as my name on here but it was apparently already taken so I did the next best thing 

What veggies are you planning on growing 2013?

I have several packets of vegetable seeds already and a lovely T&M brochure waiting to be looked at but am feeling slightly bewildered by it all. Do any of you feel like that?

MM, they sound lovely - what a pity bits missing. Where are you roughly? I am here in Cambridgeshire.
