Socks off if you love Redpolls !


This 'niger sock' was a gift from Andy Wraithmell in America, its just brilliant at pulling in and holding redpolls. I am amazed this hasnt been marketed over here yet, instead of finches trying to take niger seeds from small pecking holes or clogged up feeding ports they simply have the full run of the bag with seeds sticking out all over the place ! Had a maximum of 15 Redpolls on the sock at one time yesterday, just perfect for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch (click here) this weekend.

I'll send you some more! Glad it's working out so well. We've got loads of American Goldfinches on ours but no Pine Siskins yet!
