Activity Overview

Join us for a fun session of making bird feeders using household items! We will demonstrate how to make 3 simple types of bird feeder to keep the birds happy during the winter months. Recycle a toilet roll into a nutty treat, use up an old apple to make a juicy snack & shape some seeds into lovely heart shaped fat balls to show the birds how much you care this Valentine’s Day. We will also chat about what different types of birds like to eat & the best way of looking after them so that they keep on visiting your garden. There will also be a bird themed prize on offer.
