Feeding the birds

We have been feeding the birds for the last two months with two hanging bird feeders, one for seeds and the other for fat balls. This has resulted in a wonderful variety of  species visible from our kitchen table.  Today in the space of one hour we saw the following; blue tit, great tit, coal tit, bullfinch, goldfinch, nuthatch and on the ground picking up the dregs were; house sparrow, blackbird, dunnock, robin, chaffinch.  At one point we had seven long-tailed tits on the feeder.  We have also had pheasant, jay, magpie and even a mouse looking for the left overs.
