Have a go Nick
What is the best way to do grass seed? People have said to me when ive spread the seed put a thin layer of compost over to sto the birds from taking it is that correct?

I do a thin layer of soil/compost lightly over it, but the important thing is to make sure there's contact with the soil below, so do a little gentle walk over it to get that contact.
It's too late now to sow seed though - it's highly unlikely it'll germinate, it would probably just rot. I'd leave it until spring.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
I sow grass seed anytime unless it's frozen. If I wanted a top class lawn I would leave it til spring now.
