Hows a bird to feed around here ?

Surely they ve hung this upside down ?

Cant seem to get it right ..

Oh now I have the hang of it ..

Thats better ..anyone else have these problems ?

Aye and never anyone around to show you how it works ..

You only had to ask lad .. now peck at that little slit if you cant get on try the seeds on the tray ..

Thats easier ..why didn t you tell me this earlier ?

Well they do tend to be very popular and sometimes the only way to get some is to …

Fight !

Well done lad ..of course we fall out with each other at times too.

Tut tut .. all this aggression there are subtler ways sit on his spade by the food jar .. even he gets the message then.

No point being subtle with him ..I hop over the wall and shout wakey wakey ..

Aye and when all else fails hop up here and eyeball him ..dont even think of breakfast till you ve seen to us , works every time .

Well Ok I ll ignore you cos you re little but if you ever get a taste for fruit ..

Thank you Deida all a bit daft here .. the pheasants called Basil ( Fawlty ) and the blackbird Manuel - I know nothing ..Aster.

Aye Sixpence funny to see them arguing and another bird step in and take what the others are squabbling over ..
