Feed the birds…….

Well the weather outside is frightful…so we decided to made some munchies for our feathered friends!

We got this birdcake recipe from the RSPB website. Check it out. I love their ‘make and do’ section. Can I just underline the fact that it’s better not to melt the lard – if you do it leaks through the hole in the yoghurt pot and runs everywhere – I speak from (a very messy) experience!

I also made some strings of popcorn and sunflower seeds to hang in our bushes. Birds love popcorn apparently (not microwave popcorn though because that has too much salt and butter etc).

Keep your eyes peeled as I have a cool giveaway coming up later this week. If you have a hopeless memory, like me, then subscribe!

  5. Hi Sandi,

    Just let the lard soften (leave it out to reach room temperature) then mash all the ingredients together. Hope that helps!
