Feeding Christmas leftovers to garden birds
Once all the eating, drinking and being merry is over for Christmas Day, what to do with all the food that’s not been eaten? Here we provide some hints and tips for feeding your garden birds the very best of your Christmas leftovers.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year; one of joy, celebration, family and, of course, sharing. We all also know that Christmas comes with its own unique indulgence, a consequence of which is the leftovers we often have once the Christmas meal has arrived at it’s closing point…with a rather large, stuffed belly. Much of these leftovers can be saved for next day, but there’s usually still more to eat, so the question is can these be shared with your garden birds?
