Feeding the Birds

This is our lovely Usbourne Nature book which we have been using this week. Hannah has been trying to think of ways to encourage more wildlife into our small city garden, so today we put out suet and seed balls for the birds. 

Hannah has recently learned to tie knots and bows and is very pleased with this new skill. She carefully tied strings on to all the mesh bags so we could hang them up in the garden.

We have A LOT of cats locally so we have tied the food up as high as we could in the hope that the birds will be brave enough to come down for them. 

Hannah now has a bird table on her birthday list as well as the two chickens and a rabbit that are already on it!

that book looks beautiful - the pictures are lovely. I hope you get some birds to your garden soon; we get heaps that now wait for us in the mornings to feed them :)

V is having a rabbit for her birthday :)
