I have a nyger seed feeder, and a large feeder with a mix of sunflower kernels and dried mealworms. Even when we have lots of Goldfinches coming to the garden, the nyger seeds are virtually ignored whilst I have difficulty keeping up with consumption of the sunflower mix. By the way, Home Bargain sell the dried mealworms at 99p per 100 grammes, by far the cheapest I've seen anywhere - unless anyone knows different?
