Our garden has been relatively quiet all summer as we don't put feeders out with so much countryside on all sides. Our most regular summer sightings were the Robin, Dunnock, Blackbirds and Wren. Two weeks ago we put the feeders out - within 10 minutes we had regular visits from 2 Coal Tits. Within a couple of days we had the Great Tits and Blue Tits visiting. By the end of the first week we had Goldfinch back on the feeders and Chaffinch sweeping up below. In the middle of last week we saw a Lesser Redpoll on the feeders and today the female Great Spotted Woodpecker arrived. Still to turn up this year are the Greenfinch, Long Tailed Tits and the Siskin - and if all goes really well the Brambling.

That's two things you've said I've had to interweb, Dave….I don't think you're half as daft as you make out!!
I'm going with the rota idea though, coz if it spins at the right velocity then the birds will have 360 degree coverage with little effort from themselves, negating their need to feed through inefficient body "usage", providing more food for the rest of their family!
ps Just in case...I do know that's the wrong rota!!

Mine will be egg fried rice, beef and peppers in oyster sauce, and a few prawn crackers....I'm trying to cut down on my consumption, due to my own "inefficient body usage"
Presumable, PB, mixed together in a bucket, à la "The Meaning of Life"?
