Looks tidy and out of the way :)

Watch out for the cabling connected to the motor, they can get damaged as the motor swings round. I would suggest tying them back a little.

The wires are actually taped to the shaft of the motor so they can't hit anything nor is it tight enough for them to pull out.

Looks good - I always like the look of ground-mounted systems - leaves you a wall to put another dish on without anyone saying "why two?" or officials coming down on you with any 'one dish' rules.

Should imagine it gets a good look at the birds too, even with the fencing around it.
