I love to celebrate the Winter Solstice, filled with the hope that light brings to our life, and look forward to watching the days lengthen over the coming months. While we may gain more daylight, our days will still be cold and our birds may continue to struggle to find enough food to keep them plump and warm through to spring.
As most of us find ourselves taking a break from work and school at this time of year it is the perfect opportunity to venture into the woods and continue our woodland adventures. On your next trip why not keep an eye out for fallen pine cones which you can bring home with you. These are perfect for creating natural bird feeders which you can hang in your garden to help your garden birds thrive during the rest of the winter months.
