Merriments is a combination of a nursery, garden shop, tea room, wild bird care centre and a 4 acre garden - voted as one of the best gardens in the south of England. We took a walk through this garden and it is spectacular. (http://www.merriments.co.uk/)
It was here that I met Alan and bought our birdfeeder. It did not even take a day for the birds to find the feeder and now we have regular visitors to our balcony. Our favourite was a family of small sparrows (I think) where the little ones were fed by the parents on the feeder.
