Bird feeders

 

It is such a beautiful morning, one of those sparkling Wiltshire mornings.  A few days ago I made some bird balls to pop out into the garden.

They are so easy to make and the birds simply love them!

Take some:

Mixed bird seeds

Peanuts

Dried Meal Worms (the kind that are dead but look like they are moving)

You can add:

raw oats, raisins, scraps of left over food.

Melt about half a block of lard and mix into the dry ingredients. Leave to set in a cool place (some recipes say leave them in the fridge – but they don’t look very appetising so I put them in the porch) You can put them into an old ice cream tub or as I have into cake cases. Break them up and place outside for the birds.

Simple!
