It is winter once again, I know its hard to believe but we get one every year so it should be no surprise. So it wont surprise you when I say dont forget to feed the birds. I was pleased to see my garden feeders mobbed with 12 Goldfinches and loads of Starlings this morning, there were also Robins Blackbirds and a lonely Dunnock feeding in the borders. So what do you feed your birds. I use Sunflower Hearts they have had the shells taken off so you dont get any waste I buy fatballs peanuts table scraps bread pastry fruit etc, but this time of the year the birds love my homemade treats. Or as the RSPB call it speedy bird cake.
Ingedients: Suet or Lard bird seed (I use wild bird food ) rasins sultanas peanuts YOU CAN ALSO ADD DRIED MEAL WORMS. some empty yogurt pots and some string.
MAKE SMALL HOLE IN YOUR POT AND PUT STRING THROUGH IT remember to tie knot
