Bird table, 5 star restaurant - gift

All my life I have enjoyed the various birds that come into the garden. Occasionally being enthralled with a bird nesting in a bush. I had always wanted a bird table to place the various food groups enjoyed by a variety of songbirds that reside in my area. I also remember the long-tailed tits pecking at sunflower heads that had been chopped off and carefully placed on old discarded tea trays. A few years ago I was given a special birthday present of a bird table. It was the kind of bird table that up until that point I had only seen in books mainly as illustrations in fairy stories. It has now become a five star restaurant for the many different birds in our neighbourhood.

It has now had chance to weather, taking on a slightly worn appearance. The birds that visit the garden have got used to it and check it out to find what is available at their little wooden restaurant. It is surprising at the variety of foods that they eat even, on occasion, the odd tropical fruit.

As I also have a cat, it is good to know that she has never tried to climb up the table legs. She does, however, sit and look either from inside with her nose not quite pressed against the window pane or from the corner of the house where she appears to think that she is invisible!
