Coppice update 5th September 2010

It seems that the galvanised wire hangers I installed, as a squirrel deterrent are working.GrinTongue
After topping up the feeders on Tuesday evening, I deliberately kept away until yesterday. Plenty of Sunflower hearts still in the feeders, which normally would have been empty.
A Woodmouse kept me entertained, by popping out of the undergrowth for a constant nibble at the peanut feeder, which was lying by the hide.
I guess he/she was only about two feet from me.
Cannot be 100% certain, but I believe a juvenile Yellowhammer called by for a drink of water. No shot unfortunatelySad
Anyway I left the two tables well strewn with mixed seed,fruity pellets & dried mealworms in the hope of attracting a few different species.

Still a few modifications to carry out, before I am completely satisfied (I don't suppose that will ever happenSmile )
It won't be that long, before I am carrying out the mid week feeder top up by torchlight.
As much as I have grown accustomed to the woods and it's solitude, it can be very eerie after dark Wink

Thats all for now folks
Thanks for taking the time to read my wafflingTongue
