    I think I'm feeding most of the birds in Devon at the moment. The feeder needs topping up about every three days. There were 12 Goldfinches here earlier this week, 6 on the ground and another 6 hanging around the feeder. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to photograph them but here's one I did earlier as they say.

    We have feeders in front and back gardens and get plenty of birds on them but there must be plenty of natural food - or other feeders in neighbouring gardens - at the moment as the levels aren't going down as quickly as I would expect.

    Nice photo of the bullfinch. Every time I try to get one on our feeder he flies off :)

    We live less than 1/2 mile from the town and the only birds we get are quite a few Magpies and a couple of wood pigeons. I've put numerous fat balls up which go black and disintegrate, Dried mealworms and bird seed feeders which go mouldy, I've also hung a nest box but we get ZILCH, but go into the town and you see the odd wagtail or sparrow. This morning I saw a pair of blackbirds routing on our front lawn so I've been out and put some mealworms on the lawn and in the borders as I know blackbirds are ground feeders don't know what else I can do.

    We get the usual crowd of blue and great tits, plus goldfinches and a small flock of long tailed tits.


    .......and bloody pigeons!

    We've had all sorts on the feeders at work, blackbirds, pigeons, magpies, great tits, blue tits, long tailed tits, robins, lots of sparrows and even a couple of woodpeckers last year. We regularly have up to six buzzards soaring overhead too.
