So glad I've seen this photo

I have a pair of longtails nesting in a neighbours thick hedge that I can see from my bedroom window. They have been flying by my bird feeders and resting on the tree but have not yet eaten (as far as I know). I have similar feeders to yours and I hope that after they've checked it out they may be brave.
