Jo has got in touch to tell us –
I was standing watching the bird feeder this morning and noticed that a pair of Dunnocks flitting around the back border.
They were dicing with death, diving in and out of the chicken run and pinching pellet feed. If the girls catch them, feathers will fly!
They seem to be ignoring the bird feeder intended for the garden birds and the suet and insect pellets on the ground. Very cheeky. Jo
Hello Jo, They will surely be healthy, strong Dunnocks with pellet feed inside them!
I can just imagine these fast, small little birds out manouvering the hens! thanks for telling us about this
It’s the sort of thing I do – bypass the healthy option food and go for a big bar of chocolate!
