With the weather getting much colder, the Green Teams set to work to make some bird feeders that they could take home with them for their gardens. WildlifeKate had collected some logs and cut them up, ready for us to use.

We learnt how to use the electric drill, with a wood bit on the end, the make some large holes in the log. We also screwed two small screws in the top of our log  so we could create a hanging point.

Mixing some seed and mealworms up with a small amount of lard, we then packed the holes we had drilled, with this food. We crammed as much as we could inside.

Tying a piece of cord around the screws, our feeders were ready to hang up. We thought a Great spotted woodpecker might like to use this feeder, as well as a blue tit and a great tit !
