As soon as we bought our house, I bought two bird hoppers and hung them up on the same tree in our back garden. However the birds have been giving it a wide berth and I was beginning to think that the local cats were spooking them. Three months later and with not a bird in sight, I decided to move one of the hoppers to our cherry tree, which is quite leafy. On the second day after the move, I spotted a Great Tit plucking seeds for the hopper. Whoooopeeeee!! Finally some bird action. Hopefully the feeder is in the right place now and I may have to move the other one.
