Cotty , I have 2 metal bird feeders for fat balls and 1 for seeds that hang from posts , I also put some mealie worms out if the Robin visits 

I would avoid putting bird food on open trays 

We have rats and feild mice but the allotments is next to farm land , also lots of plot holders have chickens which seem to attract rats 🐀 and chicken feeders have to be rat proof 

We got rid of lots of carpets from the site and banned it from future use as they like to nest under it 

We have one plot holder who puts the poison out that we get from a local farmer , not available to the general public 

Agree it is nice to see the birds 🦅 

Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Victoria , recipe - used sloes , bottle of red wine , 100 grams of ordinary sugar (or thereabouts) , leave for about 6 weeks , taste it and add brandy to taste (a couple of tablespoons - taste and add more if you feel it needs it).  Strain well and then bottle.  Once you start drinking it, it doesn’t last long!

We used the used sloes berries and coated them in chocolate but didn’t really like them.  Remember they have stones in.

Let us known how you get on 🍷
