It all started with one of the those silly ideas that won't go away. But so many people have asked about it, I am beginning to think that it might not have been so silly - and now I've made a few I really like them.
Obviously they come with no guarantees as far as birds and feeding. To date no actual birds have been spotted using them, but then they are at present hanging up in the workshop.
They are made in 3 parts, with a forged hook at the top and a squiggly bit at the base (thanks to Nick at Muchelney Forge for (a) not laughing and (b) doing such a neat job).
At present I have only made 3, now we only have this one left.
