Monday 11th January
Sleet falling and a bit of a thaw setting in hopefully. Long Tailed Tits are becoming regular visitors to the feeders. Still got Blue Tit with withered leg visiting and now also one with only one leg. On Autumnwatch they said that using fat balls in nets could cause injuries and I wonder if this is whats happened. Putting out fat balls netless in feeders or using the square ones you can put in wire cages. Also had a go at making my own with ground up peanuts and suet, and leaving to set in old foil take away trays. When set I break it in half and put on the bird table or in the feeder. Robins and Woodpecker love it.
