Winter Watch

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.


Ben is our resident marketing monkey, and spends an unhealthy amount of time obsessing about keywords, ranking and other marketing voodoo.
