It’s coming closer!
ITS BROUGHT a mate!
Magpies are also corvids.
Discovered that last week :O
This year is a bit weird. Usually the fatblock and seed feeders are well used but this year they've just been allowed to go rotten. The woodpecker comes by on its daily round but just looks at the fatblock rather than gorging then going and wiping the gunge off its beak on the tree. I'll have to throw the food away and start again I think.
Maybe the weather has been too mild and there's still plenty of insects and seeds available?
They’re getting closer
Or the manufacturing has changed and they can detect sub standard product?
I have also been wondering about our fatballs.
Not a nibble; last year, three went every 2 days.
It's probably the mild weather as newbie alluded too. I haven't put any out as of yet, but now the temperatures have proper dropped I'll get some on the next stock pileup.
The tits and robins are out in force daily now at the seeds and peanuts for me.
you might be right. Those bits drifting past horizontally are sleet, I think.
They’re suet, right? I’ve seen suet in shops. Can I make my own bird suet?
Ok, I’ve just looked up suet. So if I slaughter a lamb and harvest it’s kifnesy then yeah, I can totally make my own suet.
Left up overnight. Two fatballs stolen in their entirety. Black sunflower seeds ransacked. Worms left.
Is that squirrel having a shit?
FWIW, would properly recommend pets at home’s Suet to Go branded coconut shells.
Picked up another 4 this w/e. They’re cheaper than b&q, look... spoogy... and the birds fucking love them. The starlings (which had abandoned us since we last had them, despite a range of other suet offerings being out there) devoured half a shell yesterday afternoon.
Ive bought some same-brand suet blocks, in the hope they’ll have more success than the B&Q ones that’ve been going ignored.
Wondering wtf smelt like prawns, I think. The prawns compartment is right under his nose there, and it does fucking stink.
You won't be getting rid of him now!!
I feel a photoshop my squirrel onto things thread maybe required.
My squirrel turned up. Thought he was having difficulties navigating past the fat ball I’d brought in, but nope - he totally got up there, then stole the whole bloody thing.
And ran off, being mobbed by my breeding pair of crows as he went
He’s now back, and eating peanuts.
How long you off for over Christmas? He's going to miss his daily nuts!
I love how this is in the "employment" forum.
In the absence of a dedicated procrastination one.
I put the skwerl feeder at eye height today, thinking I’d get some entertainment as he launched himself at it and, tbh, it’d be more convenient than actually having to look down.
Not a bit of it.
Lazy fat fucker just wandered on by. Not a jot of interest in actually scaling a whole foot, in order to access infinite peanuts.
He's probably buried enough to not have to worry about using the energy to get more. He'll be back.
“Paint me like one of your French girls.”
Once it's fat enough catch the squirrel and cook it. Save you having to buy something for dinner one Sunday.
