Ive placed my mealworms inside a squirrel proof cage which stops the starlings & magpies from getting to them, otherwise they would empty the dish in one sitting!
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.

Wow, you made strawberry jam at the dentist. Excellent
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.
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.
