Birds understand quality, too.

by Stuart on 3 March 2012

This has nothing to do with charities other than the people who work for them are usually nice people and might be interested in my findings.

I have a little bird table in my garden and like to think I’m doing my bit to support wildlife in south London. I have a little thingy hanging on the table that holds 3 fat balls, which the little birds seem to like.

I was in a pound shop the other day and they had fat balls much cheaper than my usual supplier so I bought a bag.

Bad decision.

The Robins, Tits and Sparrows didn’t touch them. They obviously know quality when they taste it and ignored the cheap and nasty ones.

I replace them with RSPB fat balls and am having trouble keeping up with the demand. So, if you’re a nice person and want to help the garden birds, it’s not worth buying pound shop fat balls.

Now all I have to do is to figure out how to keep the fat Robin away and let the others get a look-in!
