    I can not believe how quickly new birds come to our garden after providing and bigger range of feeds.

    We now have so many returning, just a few to mention.

    Robins, Blackbirds, Dunnocks, Blue tits, Great tits, Long tailed tits, Coal tits, Golf finches, Green finch, Black caps, redwings, Fieldfare, Thrush, Wren, Jay, Magpie, Chaffinch, Bull finch, Woodpecker.

    We feed loose seed, fat balls, Apples, Niger seed, peanuts.

    We live right on the coast, so you never know whats going to visit next.

        I'm currently feeding 4 suet bars, 16 fat balls, 1 large feeder of Niger seed per day plus a large plastic bowl of suet pellets, sunflower chips, no mess bird seed and dried mealworms, which I put out 2-3 times a day sprinkled on the ground, concrete steps, old table. Sometimes add crumbled scones and cake, fruit bits and grated cheese.
