Did post this in my nestbox thread before put thought i'd make a thread in here for it to show my little set up

Here's a picture of my 4 main feeders, I only fill these with sunflower hearts all the finches and tits and sparrows love them and wont touch normal seeds.

Then I do have bird baths but they mainly just use the waterfall that is on the pond

Today I made my own guards to stop the pigeons eating the sunflower hearts, They swing off the feeders and the little birds aren't getting a look in lately so got some hanging baskets from wilko's currently 75p each from £1:50 http://www.wilko.com/hanging-baskets+brackets/wilko-hanging-basket-black-35cm/invt/0070679 (link for them) cheap way of protecting the feeders

Here's some pictures
