They have probably found an abundance of food elswhere, but im sure they will be back, just keep the food available for them. I find sunflower hearts attract the most birds in my garden.
Wintersong, Dr Ruppel is worth looking after, its my favourite Clematis. I feared mine was suffering a few weeks ago put its growing nicely now.
Give it time. They will come. Check the food around the feeding ports after a few days to ensure it hasnt clogged up.
Mine started opening this week.

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!
