Nice Shot

Hi Colin,
Nice shot. What's that they're sitting on, some sort of feeder? If so, what did it contain?

Bully Seeds

Hi Simon - Thank you - Yes a Collander sieve it had a general mix but they did spend quite a bit of time on the Niger Seed . They are particularly fond of sunflower hearts. 3 pairs visited - they where cross feeding on tree buds as well arriving with greenery on their bill

Best Wishes
