Have you tried the squirrel proof ones? I use them to keep the Jackdaws away. Hate Jackdaws. Good list though. Although i do not live too far away from Swansea it is interesting to see how many species that are different down your neck of the woods.

That's hell of a list Darran.
I've got a good few of them on my list, with the exception of.
Brambling
Siskin
Black Cap
Nuthatch
Jay
Great Spotted Woodpecker.

I don't have any trouble with Squirrels, It's the f*cking Jackdaws that I hate, people throwing bread for the feckers, their everywhere up here, drawing rats and robbing small birds nests, I hate the f*cking things.

I wish I had a mate like Neath_Jack.

F*ck loads of male pheasants at the moment that eat all the bird feed that drops onto the floor from the feeder.

"Sky rats" that's what I call them.
Idiots with good intentions throwing bread out for them are doing more harm than good.

We don't anything like that variety here, although I spend a fortune on birdseed - it's mostly magpies we get here....incidentally I didn't see any field fares this year, I wonder why?

8.30 last night the song birds were going nuts out by the feeders. Went out and a bloody big sparrow hawk was sitting in the tree waiting for his moment.

We had a strange one the other day (well strange for us) I looked it up, it was a type of pigeon called a gier, but we are definitely missing the starlings this year. We usually see them doing their 'swarming' thing in the evening, but not a sausage so far.

Had the majority of Darran's list pay a visit, go through about a kilo of sun flower hearts and a kilo of suet logs a week. Had a family of gold finches almost take up residence this year, they love the sun flower hearts.

I'm actually putting porridge oats down in the early evening...the slugs love them and then the blackbirds come and eat the slugs - just sprinkle it around like slug bait.

Mastic along the top of the wall, razor wire over the fixings, and for security a pressure sensitive IED should do the trick.

Seriously, something like some brambles lashed to that wall would stop the little sods.

We moved in Jan and have birds in the garden for the first time since we moved to Swansea. Put up a nesting box and had a pair of blue tits successfully raise some nippers. Not sure how many though as we can't really see the box from the house. Saw the adults flying back and forth with beaks full of grubs though. Only blue tits but I'm dead chuffed for them (although they've probably been eaten by cats now).
