367 Bird Tables

We have two bird tables, the second, the one I am writing about today is a cheap one that I bought, that I have never really been satisfied with. The main reasons for my dissatisfaction are that it’s too short, and it’s too unstable. I has a tendency blow over. I’ve looked for a replacement on Amazon, e-bay and the RSGB and surprisingly I can’t find what I’m looking for.

Not unreasonable then to ask, what am I looking for, and are my expectations unreasonable? Well, I am a bit conflicted. Open top, or with a roof on? if it’s open top and it rains, presumably it’ll have to be cleaned off. Do I have to accept that I am going to have to commit time every day to this?

Another problem with bird tables is that birds are messy eaters, very messy. I have watched starlings eat under a shower of seed wind downdraft from their wings, especially when they take off enmass is surprisingly powerful.

Now, I haven’t really talked much about it because I am a bit ashamed of it, but I don’t do DIY. I am incredibly good at being bad at it. Anything DIY that I do either fails miserably, or comes out more botched than a botched job. I therefore stay away from it if at all possible.

But, I am seriously considering having a go at building my own. I have an outline plan in my mind, but I am aware that jobs like that jobs like this are much easier if you have the right tools.

I’ll keep going with what I have for the time being, but something is going to have to change.

This then is my first post after the 366 project. It feels strange, but pleasing. Let’s keep this going, I’d really like to reach a 1,000.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
