DIY Pumpkin Bird Feeder

At Halloween, we made an article about creating a simple pumpkin feeder to decorate your home with. With children knocking on your door throughout the evening in the hope of treats (or tricks), why not supply your garden birds with some of their own treats, whilst keeping with the theme of Halloween with this pumpkin bird feeder.

Make Your Own Fat Balls!

In winter time and periods of cold weather, birds absolutely love fat balls. Not only does it help them thrive and provide energy, but the taste keeps them coming back for more. Better yet, you can make them yourself, although we supply some pretty tasty ones too! All you need is some leftovers in your kitchen and you will have yourself a tasty bird cake to hang in the garden. Take a look at out fat balls recipe here
