Cranberry Bird Feeder
With 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.

Making the natural bird feeder
With 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.
Working together the two of them thread the cranberries to the end of the yarn and then added another one until they completed the chain. With some help from me we then placed it in the tree for the birds to feed from.
