2 pack car body paint.  It's a bit deadly, follow the H&S guidelines. Needs etch primer to start. External metalwork paint might do just as well, cheaper as well as less deadly

Ours it British Racing Green. Very tasteful

10 years and very little damage inside or puit

Get the aluminium one and paint the frame before glazing it. 

That's what we did

Lesley, I'd never seen a green woodpecker before I came to live here but they're quite numerous and breeding, we have groups of juveniles most years. They spend a lot of their time in the meadow poking around for ants.

Seed ID please

I agree with Zenjeff, those in the pic are inside the round smooth seed case.

Your woodpecker won't appear Lesley, neither will mine, green or greater spotted.

The moorhen has already disappeared from the pond in readiness and the heron hasn't been seen for ages.

I can rely on the blackbirds, tits and finches though

I shall be doing it.

I started at the crack of dawn last year. I looked out of the bedroom window and saw a pair of buzzards in one of the poplars.

What do I do now

I can see everything

I've got a plastic distance lens in one eye and my own shortsighted lens in the other.

ID please

rhizomes and all that stringy stuff suggest an iris of some sort Dave.

Joe, the golden rod will not be dead, believe me. There are people who've been trying to kill it for years
