Recently I decided to renew my bird feeding tactics by adding a much better selection of feeders to my cat proof cherry tree. Before improvement I just had 1x 2 port seed feeder which never really got any interest at all. Out I went to our local little pet shop and spent Â£15 on a proper 18inch peanut feeder, a 4 port seed feeder and some fat balls. Within minutes of putting it all up in the tree I had visitors! I live right in the middle of a highstreet, with a well used pathway up the side of my house.. oh and the 101 cats in the area as well. All the feeders are hung on the outermost branches away from swiping paws and hidy places for furry ambushes. All can be seen from my sofa through the window. I find myself sitting here for hours watching Blue-tits, coal-tits and a multitude of long-tailed tits come and go. After just 2 days there is at least 3 visitors an hour, with this evening breaking all records when 9 long-tailed tits all feeding on the peanut feeder at the same time! Its chuffing cold out there folks, theres no food around for the birds and they struggle. Feeders and seed cost practically nothing.. its amazing the satisfaction you can get from watching them come and go. A small pair of binoculars is useful if your feeding stations are a little way down the garden. Get feeding! its very rewarding.
