And here are a couple of beautiful pictures of Cornwall in the snow taken by my sister.

And here is the bird feeder in action. This is one hanging in the parents' garden in Cornwall where they have up to 80 birds visiting on a daily basis. These range from woodpeckers to pheasants, rather a change from South London where I get excited if something other than a feral pigeon turns up for dinner. Still, I get parakeets occasionally, and so far there are none of those in Cornwall!

This, coupled with the fact that the vast majority of birds in the area seem to be pigeons, and much as I love wildlife I don't find feral pigeons the most beautiful of birds, led me to try and find a way to feed the other birds with some decent food.
