I moved house recently, so instead of having a window feeder like we had in the flat, I now I space for a proper bird feeding station! My parents bought us a bird feeding station and some squirrel buster bird feeders as a moving in present.
My boyfriend put up the feeding station a couple of days ago, and today I finally filled it up with seeds!
I put a mixture out because I’m not sure what birds we have in the area yet. I’ve seen two blue tits, a wren and a coal tit, as well as bigger birds like crows, magpies and pigeons. It’s the small birds that I get excited about. In the flat our regular visitor was Mr Chaffinch, sometimes accompanied by Mrs Chaffinch. He used to sit in the window feeder for ages, having a feast and then just letting the world go by.
In the feeders I have used (left to right):
- Suet sticks with meal worms
- Peanuts and fat ball
- Wild bird mix
- Sunflower hearts
- Finch seeds
And of course a dish of water. I can’t wait to see what visitors we get!
