Well done Bubbles, it looks great. I've been longing for a bird bath feeder for ages now. Have a few bird feeders around my back garden and get lots of them at mealtimes every day. Is that bread scraps in the net? If it is great idea, I usually grind them up and sprinkle round the garden, unfortunately had to stop as it was encouraging unwanted little visitors ! Have to rob your idea :)

thank you for all your lovely comments, smokeyeyes I had the same problem with the vermin and the crows (I know they are still god's creatures) but I love watching the beautiful small birds in the garden

Default bird bath

fantastic, when (?) I get my patch the bird bath is a MUSt. This is a fabulous one, so unusual.
Just check with BirdWatch Ireland about bread at this time of year when the birds have young cos it can swell or get caught in the gullet, I think I remember them saying that when I was a member years ago (in a past life)

LOL might be all God's creatures Bubbles, but I wish they'd stick to their own patch. Yeah me too, love sitting having my breakfast and watching the feeders full of different varieties of birds. Have a little robin family that's been coming back to my garden for years now and blue tits. Hate the crows ( and I live at the back of a Rookery full of them !! ) BUT they didn't touch my fat balls (must have been wrong flavour for them haha! )
