I recently got a bird feeder station which consisted of a long pole with hanging bits at the top, a seed tray and a water bowl.
I bought this to try to attract more small birds to the garden. Trouble is, the pigeons and magpies come and sit on it and the smaller birds don't get a look in!!!
Anything I can do to deter the bigger birds?
One thing I tried late yesterday afternoon was to position the water bowl directly over and only just above the seed tray. Hopefully that'll stop the big birds getting on the tray, while still allowing the smaller birds under it.
I won't know if this works until the weekend as I leave for work in the dark, and it's dark when I get back!!!
