Al fresco


Here's my little bird cafe offering "wild bird seed" bought from the supermarket, fresh water, and hanging on a branch up to the left, is a lump of fat with a string through it, also sold for the purpose of supporting wild birds through the harsh winter we're having here.

The birds are shy and didn't want to be photographed, but I have seen up to six tiny silvereyes at a time pecking at the lard, and the seeds are popular too, with a variety of other species.

And all high enough up the tree to be safely out of the way of any wandering Tabby.
