Last year we signed up to be member of the RSPB and had mentally made plans to do more in the garden to support our wildlife.
Along came a pregnancy, a whole house titivation and time slipped through our fingers and we have done nothing about supporting the wildlife nor have we got round to home making some bird feeders either.
We are really lucky to live in a fairly rural area and have a massive amount of birds that visit our garden daily, from robins to giant wood pigeons but this winter we have failed to get round to making our feeders.
This however has got me thinking …. Do we have to wait until the winter months to make some bird feeders? Or can we make them any weather?
With having baby this week and having Ollie at home for a month and a half term coming up I think making some bird feeders with Joshua might be right up Daddies Street so I have been collecting some ideas on Pintrest on how we can make some bird feeders and they don’t have to be super complicated, all we need is some Kennedy wild bird food and in some juice cartons or plastic milk bottles so not that costly to make.
I think this could be the start of making things for the garden to help discover what other bird we have so close by that might like to spend more time in our garden and the RSPB site does have some other super ideas of things to make to encourage wildlife into your garden that might be fun to make to, so maybe this could be the start of Joshua learning about the wildlife and birds around us and hopefully appreciating what nature has to offer.
