This months Birdy Box

Richard puts together the Birdy Box (like a veggie box but for birds) every month and this month he has chosen lots of Wiggly Seed, peanuts, mealworms especially for those young chicks and an energy fatball in case of colder snaps.

Richard says

The cuckoo has landed, lording Lady’s smock is busting through fresh green, grassy roadside swaths and sky larks are rising high in the sky to fill the air with sounds that accompany sun shine and new life. From now on there will be a baby boom. Chicks will be screaming and scrambling for as much live food as their ever attentive parents can provide, so its never been more important to keep feeding those juicy mealworms to help those families come to fruition. Whole peanuts fed in peanut feeders will give those adoring adults a short route to a source of energy sustaining carbohydrate and protein.

Heather says:
Heard the cuckoo on Saturday and we have a pair of blackcaps in the garden that Jenny and Richard spotted on the Gardening for Wildlife course last Saturday. Here's a few comments from folk who went on Jenny's course and on Richard's Worms Day.
"Very worthwhile on composting and ecology"
"Refreshments excellent!"
"Perfect - informal and suitable"
"Enthusiastic presentation made the day very interesting and enjoyable"
