Bird food

Buy yourself a seed feeder with a tray fixed to the underneath. When I used one of these I went from refilling the feeder every 2 days to only needing to fill it every 4 days, as any spilt seed remained in the tray. 

But then comes the next problem. The trays usually have drainage holes, which can become blocked with seed or bird droppings. Spilt seen in the tray then goes mouldy. Catch 22 really.

I dont tend to use the trays now, instead I feed sunflower hearts which I find are less messy. Dunnocks and wood pigeons clear up any spilt seed before it hits the ground!

Finish the pond now or in the spring?

  All looks a little bare and new - because it is just 3 weeks old - but at least the waters cleared now...

That looks brilliant. Don't suppose you have any sketches/plans of your pond showing the position of its different levels etc do you? Or did you just dig it as you went along?

Empty Sunflower Seeds?

I cut a head off one of my Mongolian Sunflowers to collect its seeds. But most of them were just empty husks. Have a tried too early or am I just unlucky?
