It looks like my garden did not have any visiting birds. There is no sign of humans feeding. The garden is bereft of bushes and trees. therefor I’m starting from scratch.
When I moved here in June I brought my container fruit trees. They have proved a success and are growing well in their new environment.
I studied the market on the internet to find what I would need. The decision was a ‘Bird Feeder Station’ and I would place it in the special patio bird stand.
Why is nothing easy? It took me a while to put together the poles ect. but left one pole off so is a bit shorter. Fixing it to the stand also a challenge and in the process mislaid the screw which attached the poles securely. But being resourceful I found a way.
As I have a cat – Rapunzel – living next door, it had to be placed somewhere cats cannot get at as well as where I can view from indoors. This is spot I have chosen.
I have filled with each container with a small amount of mixed seed and nuts., and hung the square food as it is. In the past I have noted it takes a while for the birds to find the feeding area. Hence it will be a waiting game. This all starts on 24 September 2016 and I wonder who will visit. I will be keeping a rcord and keep you all updated as things progress.
