I think it is time the government issued a directive that all the wild birds in the country, resident or migrant , should be colourful and pretty and left alone to get on with their way of life.

I feed them, seeds and suet balls. I buy the suet balls in boxes of 100, they like them so much, that I get through about 200 or more per year.

The birds in Solihull seem to shun suet balls - they much prefer lashings of dried meal worms and husked sunflower seeds.

 

Like Solihull residents - they prefer fine food.   Doff hat.gif

It depend what type of fat balls you are offering.Our birds shun what are sold as Fat balls, but will greedily devour suet balls.

I did use the term "suet balls".  Staffordshire birds clearly prefer fast food.
