Making bird feeders for our gardens
Save the World Club enjoyed making bird feeders this week. Mr Underwood showed us how to turn a small log into an amazing feeder to attract birds to our gardens. It was great fun mixing together the bird seed, Atora shredded suet and porridge oats to make a type of fat ball. We then moulded the mixture to fill holes in the logs. The girls were taught how to use a hammer safely to attach the hanging hook into their bird feeder.
The Save the World Club are supporting the RBPB Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend. Shockingly, we’ve lost 38 million birds from UK skies in the last 50 years, so it really is vital we do all we can to look after our birdlife.
In 2021, more than one million people took part in Big Garden Birdwatch, all coming together to look out for birds. Simply count the birds you see in your garden, from your balcony or in your local park for one hour between 28 and 30 January 2022.
Why not join in and be one in a million for 2022?
