Hi everyone, not sure if this is the right kind of site to post this, but i thought someone on here might be able to give me some answers.
The garden at my parents house is quite large, and currently largely made up of moss! The plan is too scarify the whole thing, and replant with wild grasses and wild flowers native to Britain, with paths mown through to make it accessible. Hopefully this will encourage lots more birds and other wildlife into the garden (i am pushing for a pond as well!). However i am quite worried about birds, mainly pigeons, eating all the seed we put down, is there anyway of preventing this?
We currently have various feeders in the garden, would it be a good idea to get rid of those a few weeks in advance to try and discourage birds for a bit? or move the feeders to a part of the garden that will not be changed to offer them an alternative to the seeds we don't want eaten!
Or any other ideas?
I have a feeling we will just have to face the fact a lot of the seed will be eaten, but any advice will be great .
