Day 5 – Popcorn bird feeders

On day 5 of 30 Days Wild we made strings of popcorn to feed the wild garden birds.

Lottie and Ryan enjoyed threading the pieces of popcorn, using a sewing needle to pierce them.  We used plain popcorn as too much salt and sugar is not good for birds.

Then we hung them around the garden, tying many of the strands to the smaller branches of the Silver Birch trees.  The strands look beautiful and we hope will also encourage more birds into our garden.
