How to make a bird feeder
What you’ll need:
Chopping board & knife
Ribbon or string
Mixed seeds, peanuts and raisins
1/4 block of lard – leave it out of the fridge for 30 minutes first
First, cut an orange in half across the middle and scoop out the flesh. This will form a cup for your bird food.
Poke two holes in the base of the orange with a sharp pencil, about 3-4cm apart. Then thread the ribbon or string through either side.
Now, chop the lard into rough cubes and pop them into a mixing bowl.
Add some seeds, nuts, raisins and cheese, then scrunch it all together.
Make sure the ribbon is at the sides of the orange ‘cup’, then pack the seed and lard mixture inside. Put it in the fridge to set for 30 minutes. Tie it up in your garden or balcony and watch the birds tuck in!
