I put out a dish of seed for Percy the pigeon, the doves and blackbirds, but it makes such a mess on the lawn and when it gets wet it gets in a right mess.
I have been wanting a large ground feeder tray so that it doesn't make a mess and the water can drain away, but was not prepared to pay for one. Whilst at the carboot sale, my husband spotted a letter tray for 50p, he gave it a spray with some black paint to stop it rusting and made a frame with some scrap wood from the shed.
A lick of fence paint.
I got my tray and it cost hardly anything.
A job well done.
