Feeding the birds

Because the weather is changing and there isn’t as much food around for our feathered friends, we decided to try and make some tasty bird food.

We tried to make two different foods. The first one, we made using Cheerios and garden string. Did you know that birds love Cheerios?

The second food involved us mixing some packet bird food with porridge oats and lard. It felt really horrible and slimy, but it was worth it.  We made the mixture cling to the string in sausage shapes and hung it from the trees in our nature garden.

I hope the birds in our garden enjoy their winter feast.
