Huge bird feeder built at reserve
Feeder at Titchwell
Up to 20 birds at a time can use the innovative feeder
A wildlife charity is building what is thought to be one of the biggest bird feeders in the world at a nature reserve in Norfolk.

The feeder is more than 23ft (7.14m) tall and is being built at the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Titchwell Marsh reserve.

It will hang from a tree and should attract tits and finches, with up to 20 birds able to use it at a time.

The feeder has been built to celebrate Feed the Birds Day on 28 October.

Ciaran Nelson from the RSPB said: "Our attempt at the world's biggest bird feeder will hopefully draw in flocks of birds, as well as flocks of people, eager to see how important feeding garden birds is."
