Stone the Crows!

There's been some controversy recently about feeding birds during the breeding season: our decision has been to continue, on the basis that a large number of species (particularly doves and corvids) seem to need this reliable source of nutrition, both for themselves and their nestlings. We feed dry food, but also suet, mealworms and fruit, and the various species seem quite selective about what they take and when.

At any rate, the garden is full of birds at the moment: up to five Stock Doves, Yellowhammers, Jays, Jackdaws, Rooks and Magpies are virtually camped here!
