I will have to try this. I have noticed in the past in the gardens it's mostly the blackbirds that are getting stuck in to the windfall apples.
Robert: I cut the top off so they an easily get started. A squirrel did have a quick nibble. In the past this sort of thing has also attracted a thrush. I'll try anything which puts a bird where I can easily photograph it.
Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
