No birds !!!
hello, a few weeks back i asked whether i should buy a squirrel proof bird feeder to stop bigger birds quaffing all the food. i looked at these but decided against them as i wasn't convinced that the Robin could access the food properly. i bought a more secure seed feeder and a robust fat ball feeder. i put these out on my new feeding station straight away but to my dismay, not one bird has bothered with either of these, not even the greedy pigeons/magpies or jackdaws. i moved the pole last week but unfortunately, the stabilising prongs fell apart so i took it back for a refund. i've removed the fat ball feeder due to the rain and put the seed feeder slightly higher up in my dwarf pear tree. Still no birds and i think the Robin has been killed by a cat because i haven't seen him for a few weeks. i think that i'll have to give up trying to help birds that are not interested in my garden which is a shame but there we are. i'm very confused and disappointed and don't know what else to do.
