First Visitor to New Bird Feeder
Description:

Half an hour after putting the bird feeder on the tree, this was the first visitor. I haven't seen a Blue Tit frequenting the garden before so it will be interesting to see if this changes

Bird feeder.

A good point worth noting is that Jeff has not over-filled his feeder on its first outing: doing so could lead to food going off and becoming a hygiene hazard. It's best to offer small amounts (as here) and only increase the supply as your local customers become familiar and trusting of the new source and establish a level of demand.
