January gardening tips
Do remember to put out fresh supplies of water and food for the birds; prolonged periods of harsh weather are a real threat to our feathered friends. Feed them with good quality high energy bird food and fat/suet balls and check that water is not frozen. If you can’t find any bird food, scraps of bacon fat, mild cheese, fruit, breakfast cereal and uncooked oats are all fine. Moistened bread is only an empty filler, but better than nothing.
