Lovely photos. Squirrels are always guaranteed to provide entertainment, and interestingly you have birds feeding through squirrel guards!
They refuse here, fussy little beggars.....

Hi Robbo We first saw the greenfinches last Saturday and were delighted to see them, but I have put it down to the feed in the feeders, I changed the feed after cleaning the feeders. This time I thought I would try sunflower seed and hearts and they have been regular visitors every day since.

Squirrels are very inventive creatures, there won't be much to deter them, other than an empty feeder. We've used a square one, successfully and still have it in the shed for now. As far as the squirrel guards are concerned, it wasn't our thoughts, it was the birds themselves, they just never ventured through the bars!
Laughingly, the squirrels tried, and keep on trying!
