I put mine in the bath and run the shower head over them - usually every 2-3 days until the aphids have gone.

Talkback: Garden birds in the snow

Posted: 27/01/2013 at 12:59

Lately we have had pigeons, blackbirds, robin, great tits,coal tits, long tailed tits, maybe blue tits. We put out bird food and scraps, and every frosty morning I go out and put fresh lukewarm water in the water dish Birdwatch weekend so far - one blackbird and one robin. I agree with oldchippy - they have gone on holiday! 

Has anyone got any snow yet?

It snowed here ( west Manchester ) yesterday evening. Much of it is still here this morning ( only a light layer though ) and it's snowing now.
I feel sorry for all who have to travel in it. Luckily, I'm retired.

Is there an ap for GW? I am fed up with going through "Safari", then "Google", then "Gardener's World" to get at the forum. On my laptop, I have it on my favourites bar. Unfortunately, it takes forever to boot up - iPads are SO much quicker. I've looked in the Appstore but can't find it.

what do you think is the best make of bird food you have bought?

Dripping is harder than lard - would that work better? You would need to melt it first, then mix in the goodies. If you have any empty coconut feeders you could put the dripping mix in them. I keep meaning to have a go myself but not yet got round to it.

Nothing in Atherton (west of Manchester) but the sky is beginning to look that funny shade of grey. I love the snow but don't like it for travelling in!

Feeding blackbirds

Posted: 11/01/2013 at 13:24

I have bird trays hanging in the trees at the front and back of my house. The pigeons can't get into them no matter how much they try! On the other hand, the blackbirds have no trouble getting onto them - although the young blackbirds take some time to work it out. At the moment, the robin is trying to see everything off to protect "his" food.   I always do the bird watch, but the last couple of years not seen much at all on birdwatch weekend.
