Bird watch

The children have been talking about Winter and the lack of food for the birds. We signed up for the Great British garden bird watch and we are looking forward to seeing which birds visit the garden to try our tasty food. 

The children each chose a bowl to mix their bird food in.

They then cut some lard into pieces to provide fat for the birds.

Next we added some wild bird seed and mixed it really well. 

Then we rolled it into balls and put it in the fridge to chill. (Our hands had made the lard very soft)

We then went into the garden and put some of the food balls onto the bird table. now we have to wait and see who comes to visit.
