There's a Brown Bird in the Ring......

Tra la la la la......

Not much of the suet ring left now and most of the birds that come into our garden have made the most of it!







It's only taken a week for all the suet to just about disappear & I don't think the squirrel is to blame this time - I think the birds actually got chance to eat it all for themselves!

It wasn't me!

I also bought another new feeder for the Sunflower Seeds, hopefully this one is a bit more squirrel proof than the last one.
It didn't take long for the birds to get accustomed to it!

Well they certainly made short work of it Sharon! Lovely photos again, so nice to see the Thrush and also the Squirrel even though it's a bit of a rogue :)

Good to see a song thrush on it.

Looks like another visit to the shop Sharon. I'm constantly topping up the fat products - they can't get enough.

Criky! I can't believe how quickly that fat ring is disappearing! When I put out a couple of those fat block thing, for some reason the birds just wouldn't touch it. I had to chuck it away in the end. Maybe it's a quality thing!

I can't believe it's nearly all gone! I expect to see some even better photo's soon because your birds will be too fat to fly if you keep feeding them like that:-)

Super set of shots Sharon, all thanks to the new feeders. Well done. FAB.

Thanks for all your comments!
The photos are still not the best as I'm still trying to get used to the new camera.
It's very frustrating when you can see in your head what the photo was meant to look like, and all you see on screen is a blurry image!

Hi Sharon,
it looks like you got everything set up correctly according to the big number of visits you are getting... And you got rewarded as you are also getting so very nice pictures of your visitors. All in all a perfect collaboration took place ;-)
