I am SO JEALOUS. We do everything we can to attract birds and other wildlife; plentiful feeders, wildlife-friendly plants, not too tidy garden. We back onto a small wood. You'd think we'd teem with birds, but no. We get blue, great and coal tits, robins, blackbirds mainly, plus biggies like magpies and woodpigeons. Now and then nuthatches. Very occasionally a wren or dunnock. NO sparrows, starlings, thrushes, bulfinches, goldfinches, or anything much else. I have no idea why! I'd be thrilled to see sparrows, starlings or thrushes which are so common to other gardens. I don't know what else to do! We live in leafy suburbia, not a desert. What else can I do to attract other birds?
