Thats an awful shame Tim, Ive seen many not avid/beginner birders taking joy from the feeders. Have you tried Trafford Council to see if they will reimburse or if they still have hold of them. I have heard people commenting on the rats and even someone throwing stones at them >:(

Yeah. Pete Hines tells me someone complained to Trafford Council about rats and they came and removed them. They all actually belonged to myself, Steve Burke, Phil Kelly and Chris Sutton. I presume they just threw them away...

A bunch of us got together some new feeders and Steve Burke, Paul Heaton and Phil Kelly are regularly topping them up. Very surprised at such a long wait for Willow Tit. There's up to four knocking about. I've seen as many as 6 Parakeets hanging off the feeders.


 

Congratulations to all, a fantastic feeding station. I went during lunch hour so it was 'passerine lull time' and 'masses of people walking past time', hence a bit of a wait. But with the bench situated up above the feeders it was no problem sitting in the sun smile

4DHH was ringed as a male cygnet at Sale WP on 9/11/19 but was probably one of the Chorlton WP brood which dispersed early.

Many thanks for the report, Phillip.
