NEW HIDE SET UP
Since my last post about closing down my hide in Ipswich, I have be fortunate enough to be allowed to set up a new feeding station locally. Being in Ipswich, the previous hide was a good 40 mins drive away, but this new feeding station is only a 12min drive from where I live. Its in a local orchard, and the land is private, so it is unlikely that it will be vandalised or disturbed.
I set the feeding station up a few weeks ago and in the short time it has been there, I have been amazed at the number of small birds visiting the feeders. One reason that it is attracting so many small birds is the amount of trees, bushes and hedges nearby. The birds have plenty of cover to hide in should a Sparrowhawk come through, which it does quite frequently.
I made a YouTube video on how I set it all up, and it shows some of the birds that I am attracting. You will need to copy and paste the link below to access the video.
If you have any thoughts or questions about the set up/feeding station, feel free to ask in the `Coments` section of the video.
