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!
Mixed bird seeds
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.
