I've bought some different 'fat balls' but they don't seem interested in them. This little robin looks like he wouldn't turn his beak up at them!

Veronica,we've been out for ours this morning,have to look after the little 'uns don't we.

I got the more expensive ones from Wilcos's for a change Maureen. They are bigger with more seeds in them and they aren't even touching them. (they're probably going next door!)

Girls, I make my own using Atora and any brand of mixed seed plus peanuts. Then I use any kind of nets even old mesh tights. No shortage of birds, they keep coming back.

The "fat balls" are more for tits than Robins. The photo shows seeds on the ground, that's what Robins like.

Veronica,sometimes the manufacturers bulk them up with seed that they don't like..lately we've been getting them from B& M and they eat it all..mind you Cliff chops it all up for them...what's he like.

Comment by: Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 16:53

Anne,I used to make them with Atora,but I couldn't keep up with them so now I mix their seed with a block of lard..softened in the microwave then put in a yoghurt pot..with string through the bottom.

Clever Maureen, well done.
Well, it's time for a sherry..cheers.

Comment by: Beryl on 15th February 2018 at 19:33

Ahh! Rob's back, nice to see him again

Comment by: Maureen on 15th February 2018 at 19:51

Thank you Garry but I can't be that clever..otherwise I wouldn't need to do the lottery every week...twice awwwww

Comment by: Veronica on 16th February 2018 at 09:00

The birds are back this morning! There was even a Robin chasing the others off.
I would put seeds down on the ground but I don't want pigeons coming - they're a pest.

Robins love mealworms, they are gone in no time.
