I wonder why that happens? The birds eat more when the sun shines. They have eaten a kilo of food in three hours this morning. When it rains it can take most of the day. I love the wild birds in the garden (except the Rock Pigeons and the Starlings because they make such a terrible mess of the roof) and feed them. As theye were beginning to become a tad expensive at 2 kilos of seed a day they are now limited to 1 kilo a day but there's plenty of natural food so they won't go hungry. What feeding them does seem to mean in that the sparrows in particular seem to have many broods each year and this year in August they are still producing young.
