I'm still feeding the birds around the garden, from the bird table and a fatball holder hanging in a tree, though I've stopped the peanuts for this season - it seems pieces of nut can choke chicks.
We have got great value out of the bird feeder stuck to the kitchen window - I got it a few years ago from Birdwatch Ireland. As I only use the iPhone camera these days, wildlife pics aren't easy but you should be able to pick out the two coal tits hanging off the fatball. Lots of birds use the window feeder, including chaffinches, house sparrows and, of course, coal, blue and great tits though the long tailed tits haven't done so yet. A robin also occasionally balances itself on the ball though usually it stays on the windowsill below, waiting for crumbs to drop.
