Since putting my bird table up at the begging of spring last year I had a few tits and finches visit my table however once summer came it was overwhelmed with jack daws now I struggle to get any feeding, what can I do ?
Hi Harry welcome to the community.
Do you just have the bird table or do you have hanging feeders too for the Tits?

In reply to Alan.:
I have hanging feeders as well, but they really get used any more
In reply to Harry2785:
You can get Guardian cages for feeders that will let smaller birds in.
I did get them however it still didn’t attract them it was like they are now scared to go near
Do you think if I plant some bushes around or near that may help??
I should wait till the weather gets a bit colder Harry before giving up hope, there is still a lot of natural food out there, I get Crows,Magpies and Jackdaws and they haven't frightened mine off, though I do have feeders in different areas of the garden so they are spread out, the smaller birds just move when the larger birds arrive.

They do prefer some cover to dive into especially if they sense danger such as a Sparrowhawk
I think I may set a few more feeders up before I get any bushes thankyou for your help
Try some sunflower hearts in a couple, most birds love them.
Okay that’s great thankyou
