I know I've mentioned this before but I'm still not sure... we're hoping to move house in the next couple of weeks and the plan was to gradually decrease the amount of food I put out for the birds.
I've now completely run out of peanuts, there's only half a feeder of sunflower seeds and just 1 fatball left in the ring.
The problem is I wasn't expecting it to be this bloody cold every day and I'm finding it hard every morning not to refill all the feeders! Especially when there are 2 Long Tailed Tits huddled around the remaining fat ball - its quite a pathetic sight!
Some mornings its like a scene from Snow White in our back garden.. the pair of Robins sat watching you (glaring would be the correct term!), Chaffinches and Blackbirds throwing things around on the ground looking for something to eat and then there are the 2 Squirrels literally sat on the back doorstep waiting for you to throw nuts out!
So, what do I do? Do I give in and replenish all feeders to give them a chance or carry on and hope it warms up soon? If its the latter then I would have to leave all blinds closed as I don't think I could stand to see them all starving & shivering outside!
