    Please try and feed the wild birds during these harsh conditions....

    Please spare a thought for our wild birds during this unusual hard spell of weather. Food rich is calories is ideal.. such as cheese, bacon rind, fat balls that pet shops sell. Bread is better than nothing but offers little fat. And fresh water is a must too.....Thanks.. x

    The featherd types that hang out in the gardens of the UK! .....x

    Every man for himself

    we feed them every winter...bird cakes ie lard and bird nuts

    been feeding the birds in our garden but the bloody pigeons scoff all the scram down before the birds get a look in :x

    trying to encourage a few robins at the mo :thumbsup:

    I feed my bird nuts every night ;-)

    Whenever I hang my fat balls out, it doesn't take long before some bird's nibbling on 'em :-D

    Balls, Nuts and any left over fat from the families morning fry up.

    The birds round here love it, I feel like a drive through mcdonalds when I watch them from the window,

    "Can I take your order please."

    will they eat chili peanuts?

    Hedgehogs should be hibernating now... try putting out some food for the hedgies in spring time x

    you got me thinking when you posted about feeding the birds & i was looking around youtube for ideas on making bird cakes & found this vid using fir/pine cones stuffed with lard & birdfood, brilliant idea as there are hundreds of the things that just get swept up & binned :thinking:

    You're right...... Bet we throw aways all sorts of food which could be used to help our wildlife. Thanks for the Youtube clip x

    Every species for themselves man. Let them find their own food
