Magpies and Starlings

Feeding the small birds with all sorts of feeders along the wall I felt sorry for the Blackbirds so yesterday I put feed mix with suet, currants etc on top of the wall, today there have been Starlings and a Magpie there. Will this cause a problem for the small birds?

Its not realy a problem. Put some food on the ground for the ground feeders like Wrens and it will help you cover all the bases.

Thankyou for welcoming me to the forum, Today my partner bought me for christmas a cast iron bird feeder house sort of thing on a stand, which I hope the bigger birds will use.
