Did you know…
Thousands of siskins, a small seed eating finch, are visiting our shores this winter from eastern Europe – the first time this has happened since 1993. We do have a healthy population of resident birds, but their arrival in such numbers could signal a cold winter to come.
Snippit of information I discovered via the RSPB’s e-mail newsletter.
With ski resorts opening early all over the alps perhaps we’ll all be in for a white Christmas for a change?
If there is a cold snap then make sure you’re ready to put some food out for the birds. Ethical Superstore recommends this bird feeder, complete with 1kg of Organic Peanuts.
