    Blackbirds and cats

    Also prickly hedging type plants like Berberis and Pyracantha, somewhere the birds can hide and the cats will be deterred from.

    This sounds good! The bees I have used to go into holes in the brickwork on the side of my house, so thought the tubes would be similar. I can’t wait to see if I get any cocoons!
