Natural Bird Feeder

Cranberry Bird Feeder

Natural Bird FeederWith winter firmly showing it’s presence it’s so important that we feed our native wildlife and in the UK that means birds. We have a few birds that remain all year round and are frequent garden visitors so creating bird feeding stations for them is important for us.

What you need to make a natural bird feeder

Threading needle (we used a blunt finishing needle)

threading cranberriesWith a bowl full of left over Christmas Cranberries we set about making some natural bird feed to hang in the garden. Tying the end of a piece of wool in a large loop and knot the kids started to thread on the cranberries together.
