I won't David. I have various types of food hanging from tree branches (about 10 feet above ground) so that all the seed and nut eaters are catered for. I also put out food for the ground feeders and I think you just have to be aware of attrition rates. Many birds will succumb to predators; a few will be killed by others of their species and with weather like we have had many will lie from cold/lack of food. I am just trying to help as many as I can.

Keep up the good work you're doing much more good than harm.

Don't forget that they also need water.

Congratulations, it seems you are doing a great job, you must get a fair few different species through your garden, do not forget it is the RSBP Bird Watch
this weekend, just to echo Cephus's remark, you are doing far more good than harm.
Thank you David

Sorry for not responding sooner but I have been out most of the afternoon.

The RSPB Bird Watch weekend had passed me by. I'll look into it and see how I can contribute. Thanks to both you and Cephus for the encouraging words.
