We do...
We have a bird table and we feed the birds with fatballs, and suetballs,sunflower seeds,porridge oats and other wild birdseed....we have a bird box as well and try and get the kids involved in looking after our feathered friends.
We have bluetits and sparrows at the moment...... :)

No. I have a cat that kills seagulls. It wouldn't be feeding so much as putting out bait...

My Mum has a bird table and feeders.

We don't. I would imagine there's only pterodactyls around here

I use the seagulls round ere as a waste disposal unit. With a variable appetite and a liking for buying bread reduced to 9p in Morrisons I often have unused food left over. So I throw it on the garage roof for the seagulls etc. They then say thanks by shitting all over my car. :rofl:

In winter I do try to put some food out for the sparrows and smaller birds - on a bird table which the big uns find awkward to land on.

A while ago I found a large amount of seagull feathers scattered around when visiting mum's house, so cats will definitely grab them if they get the chance

Got some here, though it started late today for some reason. Maybe its cold and damp and they take a while to get going?

The seagulls were the earliest visitors, clearing up some stuff I'd put out last night.

At one time I used to get lots of bird song before dawn, which I thought a little odd.

At this time of year I always have a dozen sparrows looking for insects in the ivy on my house walls, plus another dozen elsewhere. :):

Awww I adore the birds but I have cats as well, so its a no no!

Annie I think you always find that when the birds stop breeding and the nights draw in you dont get the dawn chorus!, just a few months ago you'd hear the blackbird first in the morning and last thing at night...he has also stopped singing. I think definatly to do with the time of year.
