Default Wild bird feeder wanted. Any suggestions please?

Hi all. I'm looking for a bird feeder that will fix to the decking hand rail. It will ideally have a long arm to hang a feeder from. Has anyone got one or seen one please?
I've found a few via a Google search, but recommendations are always better.
Thanks

Angela, there are a number of folks on our site that use thick wigs/ small fallen branches fastened to their decking with plastic ties. You cannot get better value than that

So, am I correct in thinking that you still need something to attach the container with the food in on to the twigs? Or am I missing something?

No fastenings required if you use the forks in the wood to hold the feeders in place.

Not wishing to put a damper on it but bear in mind that the seeds from feeders also attract rodents.
I have a number of feeders in my back garden and I have occasionally seen mice feretting about picking up the fallen seeds. It drives my dog potty

That’s a good point, Springtime. It certainly needs careful consideration.
