Where have all the little birdies gone?

My garden seems to attract only big birds.


No, not like that! Seagulls, crows, magpies, collared doves, and humungous Wood pigeons. Where are all the sparrows, robins and wrens? 
This isn't just a thousand to one shot. This is a professional blood sport. It can happen to you. And it can happen again.

Are you trying to attract small birds with food?

Is there adequate cover for small birds (bushes, trees)?

They're all in my garden south of the Thames. Blue tits, great tits, long-tailed tits, chaffinches, sparrows, robins, dunnocks, etc. There's a very nice tit right in front of me at the mo.  :thumbsup:
