Why don't my birds love me any more....?
I have had a bird feeder hanging in my garden for some time now and it has always been very well used by a variety of little birds, who in turn sprinkle enough to keep the ground feeding birds happy too.
About a month ago I notice that it was grubby so took it down and gave it a good wash and then refilled.
Since then the birds just aren't using it anymore. I see them in the garden but they arent going anywhere near the feeder.
