It's a long time since I used this feeder, but yesterday afternoon I decided it was time to start offering fat blocks again so I put on my cookery apron . and in due course had 9 new blocks!

I put a block put this morning, set I-Catcher going, and wondered how long it would take for the birds to find it. Within half an hour, the first visitor arrived - a blutit, and subsequently we also saw: great tit, coal tit, robin, nuthatch and (a very frustrated) magpie, that could only cling on to the cage.

The news has spread around - so I have a regular weekly "cooking for birds" date!

We're used to seeing starlings attempting to get to the fat block - but here's a different frustrated visitor!
