Don't forget that as winter fast approaches the birds need all the help they can get. The RSPB have launched a Feed The Birds campaign to get people helping our feathered friends. There are loads of day events scattered over the UK to inform and encourage people to make feeders and put up nesting boxes, as well as take steps to ensure the wellbeing of the other local wildlife you may find in your garden at this time of the year.
With the half term week next week and Samhain on the way there is no better time to get creating, with the kids if you have any, or just by yourself, to do something to help them out. Natural bird feeders are easy and fun to make... I'm going to do it with Beth one day next week so I'll post up some pictures and my favourite method soon :)
