Simplify and improve...


Following traditional invention processes, I dreamed about the bottle and realised that it could be made simpler...

The same inverted base but just one bottle involved. No waste!





The Marsh Tits have no preference for either and they are the most frequent visitors.

Meanwhile, on the lawn, the cold has encouraged Blackbirds, Songthrush and Starlings to return. Wrens and Yellowhammers ignore my activity and eachother. There is inevitably, evidence of a recently sighted Sparrowhawk taking understandable advantage. I shall spare you that one.


..and the Woodpecker has become more curious....




The other major predator just can't be bothered.



This one is really worth enlarging!

Marsh or Willow Tit - this can be baffling, especially after reading the recent 10 page identification article in British Birds - December 2009!

Very true, I have checked my two cross references and have decided that, on balance of probability, Marsh edges ahead..

LOVE the birdfeeders! I made both today and am very pleased with the results as well, aside from a nasty cut on my finger fron a very sharp Ginsu knife. THANK YOU for sharing!
