I have read two bits of different advice on where to position a bird table
One person said to put a birdtable near a hedge. If birds are in a hedge they can dodge sparrowhawks etc. Do not put a birdtable out in the open as a bird of prey has a clear view and can strike easily.
The second person said – Put yor bird table out in the open. The garden birds have a clear all round view if you do that.
Which do you think is right?
