  • Forum Thread: Blue Tit Courtship

    These two are actually way beyond the courtship stage as they have been lining out our nestbox for a couple of weeks now.

  • Forum Thread: Advice on feeding birds

  • Forum Reply: Re: Pink berry suet pellets (McDonalds v Michelin)

    Thank you all for your replies. I'm ashamed to admit that I could bear the absence of robins demanding food no longer and acquired a pack of similar-to-Wilkinson's pink berry suet pellets - and the robins are back already, aaaah. Mr and Mrs Robin are now doing that strange thing where they...
