samwiseg these are fantastic, I’ve thought about getting a window perch but I’m always worried as Eric has flown into the window before even though I have vertical blinds up, how do you prevent them flying into the window?

You can put sheets of paper on the window using blue tack until they get to know the boundaries. I used to that but lately I haven't done so. They do fly into the window but not at full speed. It has the same effect they get to know where the boundaries are. I have vertical blinds on one window but they still fly into those and get tangled. I suppose it might be better with a perch on the window.
I don't have to prevent them flying into our window at the moment helenmat because when we moved into our new flat the lounge window is blown and is on the to do list to be replaced. So it has a permanent cloud in it atm so they don't fly into it!
But as OP said I would put up A4 paper to prevent them if we needed to

LOVE these samwiseg, what lucky boys. I too like the idea of the cake cases . I have sticky butterflies stuck onto my glass doors here and there, they stop the buds flying into it and they look pretty too
I hope they love them in the end Shirlsclt80 cause at the moment they are still wary!
They are lucky boys skysmum (considering how much I paid for them) and only one bud has really gone near them yet! However, that is good enough for me - like you said Marianne Marlow Nubbs is not far behind. Reason for that is he HAS to be wherever Murph is so no doubt he will be with him on them soon!
I know what you mean there Hezz, when I try to get them to take I look I find myself making the paper rustle and make noises like "oooh look mummy bought this for you, what is it then?" but then find myself twiddling the paper bits whilst on the computer!!!
Well at least 2 of us are getting some enjoyment out of them
