Are you making the best out of your bird feeders?
Many of us support our wildlife in some way, whether it be a bird feeder in the back garden, scattering seeds while we're out for a walk, or taking some stale bread for the ducks at the local pond. But, how much thought have you given to what you're putting out there?
Two things to think about:
Is the food you're putting out as nutritional as you expect?
Could you make your pennies stretch a little further?
Bags of wild bird seed are pretty easy to come by, and should have been measured up by industry experts to give a balanced diet, but is that really the best we can do? Maybe it's time to rethink your kitchen waste bin... Supplement your everyday seed mix with kitchen scraps you would normally throw away. This could make that seed bag last a little longer, reduce waste and save a few pennies along the way.
