Wowzers, it has certainly got cold! Not just for us either, can you imagine how the birds must feel?! They may look puffed-up and fat but that it just to try an insulate their feathers against the cold. You can help them survive this cold snap by putting out some much-needed food. Peanuts from a reputable source, sunflower seeds, suet, mealworms, raw or cooked pastry, dried fruit, mashed or jacket potatoes, and don't forget clean water! I have been rewarded by the sight of Siskins and also a Treecreeper on my feeders, so feeling a bit smug - sorry!!
This is where we have our say on what we have been doing, what we want to do, what new products we may be introducing, and more often, having a bit of a rant about the Government, plastic, fracking......you name it.
