Yes, Steve, she feeds wild birds and wildlife all year round, takes our dog out if we are away for over four hours, and is the ideal neighbour. Her OH has brought some dust masks and shoe covers home from work! I told her we had plenty of the former.
Mine have been going to bed ever earlier, and last night at 8.15, when the adverts came on the TV, I went down the garden, gear in hand, to put them to bed. The door was still open, but all were inside, singing away. Like a flash, they were all at the gate, expecting treats, food, etc. I had to wait...

They look so friendly from the photos. Mine only let me touch them on their backs for a second, and I've had them for two and a half weeks. Best of luck with them.
