best kind of bird feeder?

Give it time. They will come. Check the food around the feeding ports after a few days to ensure it hasnt clogged up.

It was about 3ft deep at its deepest part, with a shelf around the edge and a gentle slope from the edge. To be honest I used the hole left behind from the tree, just reshaped it a little.

Feeding meal worms to my nesting blue tits

Your right, the tits still go out and return with grubs/flies etc. I think feeding live meal worms etc helps take some of the strain off the parents, and gives them something to eat as well. Packed with protien.

Threelawney, I hope the above is of use to you. HF can also grow on dead tree stumps if you have any in your garden. Saying that, yours might not be a privet hedge!

True. But its branches were rotting away...

I can only assume it had honey fungus as they are prone to it. I took a gamble to be honest. I didnt want to loose the tree but I defunately didnt want to loose the hedge. But the tree got its own back, when lifting out the root ball I did my back in and two years later my back still isnt right!
