Bird feeding (again!)

I bought pink (berry?) suet pellets and have found far less enthusiasm from our feathered friends. Has anyone else noted this? I think the white (mealworm?) pellets were taken far more enthusiastically...

    I find birds are pretty picky depending upon the time of year.

    They take time to go to new stuff in the feeding station. 

    Give them time and they'll get used to newbies.

  • Previously I used a mix of four flavours (including pink!) but this time I bought 10kg as it was cheaper...

    I've put out some chocolate digestive which are well past sell by and a LOT soggy. One or two have sampled , but I'm sure they'll all go in the end.

    The great spotted woodpeckers i my garden only like the expensive pink berry suet blocks.

    Steve, trust me , these were rank.

    By comparison, I broke my own record this week by eating ? drinking? a yogurt which was 59 days past its use by date . June 10th.

  • Surely by that stage the bacteria had settled down and had kids, nay, grandkids!?!
