    Nutters in the garden are no good…. Nice shot…!!!

    Just an observation or 2, take it or leave it…

    You probably aren't shooting toward the house right behind the bait station since a stray shot could be a problem..?

    The whole peanuts in your bait station for me is not good at my bait station. As nutters tend to grab them and run off to hide them or eat them elsewhere. Shelled peanuts/halfs keep them at the bait station munching away presenting a perfect still target as does your ear of corn…

    I set up a wireless driveway chime next to mine. So when it goes “ding ding” I know when to take a look.

    I had a wireless chime but wife got tired of hearing it go of all the time as the birds I feed also set it off so I just take a look every so often as wife lets me know when its a pest out there. always are some good birds I like to see so only shooting the tree rats black birds sparrows and starlings  no that house is from a different angle so I'm all good   yep sunflower seeds works well but I find the corn cobb is good

    There does seem to be from the photo lots of “things” beyond your bait station. Seems like your margin for error is very small. The above statement was my first thought when looking at your setup.

    It might be a good idea to lower that bait station and add a backstop unless you are shooting at it from a second floor window.  That would have you shooting towards the ground.  If a squirrel's head won't stop one of your pellets, that fence is not likely to do it either. Then there is always the possibility that a pass through will also find its way through or over the fence …  jus' sayin'
