Thanks was thinking about this as my mate Robin always hangs around when I’m gardening. On Sunday he brought his bird too and I thought I should get some food in just for them. I didn’t know birds ate cheese.
Mush up cooked fat, poultry skin, pork skin etc with oats in a food processor. All that fat's better in the birds than in your body.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give this a go.
