Over the half-term break we made a selection of different bird feeders which we hope will benefit lots of garden birds, especially now it’s starting to get so much colder. Pictured below are some we made from pipe cleaners and breakfast cereal, but we also got a lot messier with pine cones, lard and bird seed! Over 100 people took part, and whilst we were making them we learnt about the problems associated with feeding bread to the birds living on Heath Pool. Bread can cause health problems for the birds and we find that they are fed rather too much of it. We suggest you bring seed or even grass cuttings instead and just a very small amount of it.
