Had to fill the bird bath twice they were having a great time had none for years but now have a regular flock of up to 50 each day so put mixed seed on the grass for them,it is fascinating to watch there behaviour they don't deserve the bad press they get I love these birds.

I agree

Last year we had roughly 40-50 daily, morning and evening. We went through 5kg of mealworms in a week [cost me £60], but well worth it to watch the youngsters trying to cadge food of the adults.

I am pleased you like them too as lot's of people seem to be rather choosy in what they feed and I find that rather sad as all birds are wonderful.I too seem to spend a lot I have been getting my food in bulk as it's cheaper but have been getting the square fat blocks from Pound stretcher cheap shop pack of 3 for £1.50 and meal worms £1 and there BTO approved too so worth a look I get 25kg bags of seed and nuts.I have been watching them today all the birds are finding it hard with the lack of berries this year and it's freezing too.
