A friend saw this little kit the other day and thought about me and my problems with the squirrels in my garden wrecking mine.
It's to recycle an old plastic bottle and turn it into a bird feeder... looked simple enough.
I am at home with my feet up resting my knee so have plenty of time on my hands at the moment.
A disadvantage for me when taking images of the birds with my camera.
I got to work at putting this simple feeder together.
The feeding tray screws onto the thread of the bottle top... quite tightly so hopefully hard to dislodge.
It may have been missing when the item purchased or had fallen out without being noticed... but whatever had happened to the plug I decided it couldn't have been very secure in the first place and would certainly be be a weak spot for the squirrels.
Bottles are in plentiful supply so as long as the the tray survives I might get some mileage out of this one.
Only time will tell.
Guess who was watching while I put up the new feeder... far to cute for a vandal.
Watch this space.
