Has anyone seen these mesh trays (under the feeders)? I grabbed this screen shot from a YouTube video from Nottingham, England. I could swear I've seen them here or on other forums as well. I just can't seem to find them.

Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

They are sold in the UK by many gardening centers under the name "hanging feeder trays". Here is an Amazon example: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FJ5U3T4/

To be honest I've tried them in the past and they are no-go because the sparrows throw the feed everywhere.
Great for the wood pigeons and magpies, but it's a massive waste of feed. D'Oh!

Thanks!
I'm thinking about using them under silo feeders to catch the seed already thrown. But the price will probably cause me to make an alternative.
