New to my Garden
Over the last couple of days we've had a new visitor with the usual blackbirds who visit to feed. I assume it is a blackbird, but if anyone knows otherwise, I'd love to know. He tends to be partial to peanut butter on toast!

Re: sparrow hawk
I think I am right in saying that the 'P' in 'RSPB' stands for 'Protection'. None of us who support the RSPB are in the business of picking and choosing which birds to protect particularly when it is a case of a bird acting naturally. Humans are certainly violent and cruel...

Re: Observations & warnings
We echo your concerns Pauline and we do not sell any of our products with mesh bags. We have seen many birds injured through getting entangled with the nylon mesh.
