On Sunday I tried to take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch but the number of birds frequenting my garden was frankly negligible. I want more feathered friends in my tiny patch of wild, so I’ve decided to bribe them with food.
Birds really need extra nutrients and fat supplies to see them through the winter months. You can help them out, and be rewarded with a lively backyard, by making a quick and easy birdcake using kitchen scraps.
Here I am coming over all Blue Peter with a here’s-one-I-made-earlier birdcake recipe. And for more information on foods that are safe for birds, check out this handy guide from the RSPB.
