Food!

With the sparrows and Starlings still eating us out of house and home - and making an awful mess in the process, I have tried to come up with a solution to them dropping so much on the ground. I have fitted a 'dish' under the fat-balls to try to catch the bits as they fall, hopefully the birds will then eat the bits from the dish too. With sparrows fighting, starlings squabbling, pigeons picking up the pieces, Great Tits stealing in between fights and the occasional Magpie causing havoc, it is bedlam in the trees.
Sparrow numbers in Britain have crashed in recent years, so it is very important that we all do what we can to help them, but you would think they would be a bit more grateful, try to get on with each other and not trash our garden - bless 'em!
