Friends kindly gave me a genuinely squirrel-proof bird feeder at Christmas. This little blackcap comes on cold days, and seems to think he's in peanut heaven.
In v.2 he's doing his Eastenders Phil Mitchell impression of 'They're mine. Don't even fink about it!'
Bit of fun for a silly upload.
(Taken through glass).

Best to all,
Dave.

Think this one finally is, Christina. The gap for the birds is quite small, but it's amazing how they can squeeze themselves through. The metal is too think by far for any squirrel to bite through.
