Starling candle

The candle that i put up for the birds has been in place for just over a week now. Has been a firm favourite with the starlings.
Would be nice though if other types of birds would come in for a taste. Seeing that it originally weighed in at just under a kilo, just goes to show how much these birds can eat. Thats not counting the ground feeding they get.

Bought a candle suet feast and holder. Must say the birds are quite liking it. There is a litre of feast in the candle and is very large.
The holder also comes with a chain attached for hanging, or can put it on the end of a pole like i have done. Can get smaller candles as well.
As one can see there is plenty perch room in the form of a ring half way up or plenty grip for clingers.

Hurry up with the photo its cold

This little robin usually feeds on the bird table. By chance i happen to see it on the ground feeder. Must have been attracted by the fat from the crushed up fatball that was there. Starlings ate most of it.
