On arrival at our cottage we both noticed some feeders in the front garden with a couple of bits of stale bread in them, but still being visited by a couple of Blue Tits. We managed to get hold of some peanuts and half coconuts filled with fat to see if we could entice some more birds to visit, I even managed to fix a more natural perch in the form of an old tree branch close to the feeders in the hope of a bird landing there before using the feeders. In the morning the feeders were full of 3 species of Tit, Coal, Blue and Great, all happily feeding away until the arrival of a Nuthatch which caused all the other birds to disappear. He wouldn't sit on that blessed tree branch though, so I am afraid you are stuck with these 'unnatural' looking shots.
