We have now got the bird feeder stand sorted; the old peanuts that got saturated through the prolonged wet weather have been disposed of; the seed feeder that was not so well secured, has been retrieved from the ground, refilled, secured back in situ and, hopefully, will withstand a bit of weather.
Late morning, I saw a few small birds feeding - chat with hubby follows:-
Me: There were some small birds at the feeder, the first for a while;
Him: There haven't been any lately;
Me: Perhaps the feeder is a bit exposed;
Him: Could be;
Me: Perhaps the birds need to know the food is available.
Him: Okay, I'll put a message on Twitter!
