This little Dunnock is my Happiest experience this year ~ so happy to have helped him grow up.
Summer 2020 has been challenging but still a huge amount of birds visited the garden:
Lots of baby birds of all sorts, Baby Robins with spotty chests, Siskins, Dunnocks, Bullfinches, Blackbirds, Song Thrush, Siskins, Greenfinches, Goldfinches, Wrens, Nuthatches, Tree Creepers, Wood Peckers, Collared Doves and many more all lovely and all welcome to the feeders constantly being refilled ~ and the water for hot days.

Thank you @gmarkj
I hope so too ~ it can be up and down but lots of tubes filled
I clean them because they can be predated so some I can save from a tube.
Each bee has a mud plug between so even if one bee is predated the others can survive.

The little mud plug is sometimes attached to the silk but this comes off gently.
The I clean them in dry sand moving them around gently.
