Hey Sharifa, stunning photos expecially the battling bishops.

You are very lucky to see them in your garden.

Like your fancy bird feeder, can we see a full picture of it please?

Thanks Guys \O
Its a homemade bird feeder. Took a 2l coke bottle and cut holes on two sides. Used the tops of two other 1l coke bottles and just glued a strip of plastic so the seeds don't fall out. Filled the bottle with plaster of paris just for the base, and stuck a wooden stick through before it hardened, for the birds to sit on. I decorated it with beads but I see now I need to re-decorate the diner :-)

Now all I do is open the top and use a funnel to fill up the seeds.
