Oh, Nic – those photos were awful! That was the size of mesh I was looking at 🙁
There is a small size mesh (for sparrows, blue tits, robins etc) but it was the blackbirds/occasional thrush I was hoping to help as well as the smaller birds.
And aren’t I the hypocrite? Trying to bring awareness re: the dangers of strimmers etc but looking at buying something with a warning about risk to hedgehogs.
My only excuse is ‘Big Bird’ has turned my brain 🙁 The crows, magpies feast like Kings on the bird food and had even worked out a way to get into the hedgehog feeding station early morning 🙁 I have the fattest wood pigeons, collared doves in North Yorkshire. ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ (but the small are cheaper to feed in these times of financial constraint!)
Thank you as ever for your help and advice. Want to support the birds but the hedgehogs come first, so – no ground feeder cage.
