I use a log feeder which is bolted to a permanent post to make it moveable for re-filling.
My recipe is: Chop unsalted peanuts in an old food processor until coarse or fine. Melt branded beef suet slowly in a saucepan without boiling. Add chopped peanuts into the melted suet and stir until completely mixed. Remove from heat at an early stage. Spoon fluid mix into the holes of a horizontal log feeder and allow to solidify. Position, or re-position, log feeder. I use 500ml of nuts with two 200g packets of beef suet. Any surplus may be poured into a small tray, cooled and placed in a net feeder. Stand back and count the species. MJD.
