    Most climber should work, try a clematis and or a rose or a honeysuckle.

    I wouldn't do that. I'd have it out or down and build something for a climber. A dead tree fallsover or collapsed sooner or later leaving your climber stranded

    I understand what Vicky means about the birds having somewhere to hide from the Sparrowhawk near to the feeders - but what about an obelisk or an archway with a climbing rose or clematis for the birds to hide in when the birds of prey are about image
