Owners of the bird table

Inspired by the article in the BBC Wildlife Magazine - Understand Your Garden Birds, I spent some time in my garden.
It was obvious that the Robin was in charge today, it takes a particular dislike to the Dunnocks.
However the Blackbirds seem to do their own thing down the bottom of the garden.
The Blue tits and Great tits wait for the all clear, take what is in sight then retreat back to the hazel tree for safety.
The Crows sit on the pylon or the silver birch tree then swoop down, grab what they want, then fly off.
The Great Spotted Woodpecker is around the garden but will only come to the feeder in January to March when they can't find food elsewhere.
The Long Tailed Tits prefer to stay on the hedges but will come in ocassionaly late afternoon.
We have a wren but it doesn't feed from the bird feeders.
The wood pigeons who spend a lot of time in the garden during the spring and summer have joined the large flocks in the farmers fields and the fieldfares edge around the garden but are more interested in the hedgerow berries and the orchard.
