Let’s make bird cake!
Listen up animal heroes! It’s getting to the time of year when we birds struggle to find food. Snails and slugs are thinking about hibernating, worms rarely venture above ground when it’s cold and caterpillars haven’t been seen for weeks.
So here’s what we’re going to do…we’re going to make a bird cake!
All you need is lard, bird seed, a yoghurt pot and string.
Now take one adult human and ask them to melt half a pack of lard in a saucepan. When the lard has melted, add a cup of bird seed, stir well and remove from the heat.
When the mixture is cool, spoon it into empty yoghurt pots and poke a bit of string into the mixture. When set, carefully ease the bird cake from the yoghurt pot and hang on a tree – easy.
It sounds so good that I might even have a nibble myself.
