Just to follow up on my post about bird feeding - we had been giving them B&Q birdseed and they (the birds) didn't seem interested, then switched to Bill Oddie's recommended seed from Haith's and they've gone crazy for it. You can see the difference in the mix - less grain, more and different types of seeds.
We've had less success with squirrel protection - the Sunday Telegraph recommended cayenne pepper. We didn't have any but tried a mixture of paprika and chilli powder, but the grey git took no notice and had another go at mangling my feeder. Perhaps I should call my friend Rupert...
