             Made especially for the very small birds such as blue tits, finches, robins, nuthatch or sparrows. Birds such as pigeons but also blackbirds and jays cannot land because of the  canopy above the feed aperture which also protects against bad weather.

weather that they be resealed every six months. This will keep them fresh and bright, and will help slow the deterioration.We use a Thompson’s water sealer, and an inexpensive pump sprayer, like one you use to water indoor plants.
             To fill, take off the roof and fill the feed hopper. Fat-balls and nut sacks can be hung from the wooden pegs on the sides of the feeder.
              This feeder has provision on the rear so it can be suspended from a screw or it can be placed on the pole supplied.
Note: The pole that is supplied with the feeder should be hammered into the ground to a depth of 15-20 cm.
Ideally the rear of the feeder should face the main wind direction to protect the food from the wind and rain.

These bird feeders and nesting boxes are all handmade and painted so will differ slightly from the ones pictured.
Pole supplied is 4x4x180cm (h)

Lesser Redpoll.

 
The finch family boasts many popular garden birds, including Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Greenfinch and Bullfinch. More recently, a growing number of people have been able to add Lesser Redpoll to this list.
It is a small, short-tailed finch, 11.512.5 centimetres (4.54.9 in) long with a wingspan of 2022.5 centimetres (7.98.9 in) and a weight of 912 grams (0.320.42 oz). The bill is short, conical and sharply pointed and is pale yellow with a dark tip. The adult male is largely brown above with darker streaks. It has a red forehead, a black chin and, during the breeding season, pink on the breast and face.

Lesser Redpoll.

 The flanks are buff with dark streaks and the belly and under tail-coverts are whitish. There are two pale bars on the wing. The adult female is similar but lacks the pink on the breast and face and has less streaking on the flanks. The juvenile has a pale head with no red forehead and less black on the chin.

Lesser Redpoll.
  
Lesser Redpolls are a terrific addition to any garden, bringing with them lots of activity and lively twittering. They are sociable birds, often travelling with Siskins and Goldfinches during early spring. Their increasing use of bird feeders particularly of nyger seed is of considerable interest and importance because Lesser Redpolls are a species of high conservation concern.
In gardens, numbers of Lesser Redpolls have rocketed over recent years. In particular, nyjer seed is proving very popular. Lesser Redpolls are seen most often in gardens during late winter, although there are indications that this influx is now starting before the turn of the year.
