I,m new to the site. joined to find out if others have noticed a decline in bird numbers to their feeders. We have 2 feeders and normally have a queue of goldfinches, chaffinches etc ,and have to replenish the feeders twice per day. Over the last 19 days there has been a significant drop in numbers, even though we have had snow and very cold.The feeders don't need replenishing nearly so much. We are in the Scottish Borders and our son in Glasgow has noticed the same. Worried this could be avian flu. We have chickens who are in lock down in the polytunnell.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

In reply to Linda257:
Weatherand time of year is most likely the cause imo.
