Please don't put fatballs out in the pastic mesh they come wrapped in as birds can get tangled in them. Tip: If you put fatballs and other suet feeds in the fridge they last longer. Try moving your feeders superbrill, if they are too near a bird box it can cause problems, also birds like to have some trees/shrubs nearby the feeders so they can duck back under cover if predators show up. I have a dog and also a regular visiting sparrowhawk but it doesn't seem to put the birds off for long
I have blue tits in my bird box, and had blackbirds in my bay shrub,the magpie got the baby blackbirds and they have now gone, also had a baby pigeon that died overnight probably somebody's cat. any ideas how I can protect the birds better. ps the bluetitis seem ok but I have seen a sparrow trying to get into the box is this normal ?
