I've been feeding all year and you're right it's proving expensive but it's lovely watching them. I feed nuts, mixed seed, fat balls and a robin mix with mealworms. I have loads of sparrows, blackbirds, magpies, starlings, robins, goldfinches, blue tits, great tits and long tailed tits. I also have sparrowhawks that visit (it goes a bit quiet then) and have had a woodpecker this year. Not bed for a town garden. I'm sure there are other species but I only recognise the obvious ones.
