The Big Garden Bird Watch is happening at the end of the month so make sure you get your Yorkshire Bird Food Co seed out to attract the birds to the garden and get counting. There is more information at www.rspb.org.uk and you can download check sheets & information sheets.

On the farm things are fairly quiet in January with mainly cattle jobs at this time of year and machinery maintenance. We ensure we are topping up our bird feeders weekly throughout the farm to help keep the birds fed through the colder months. If we do get any sustained periods of frozen weather don’t forget to put fresh water out for the birds as they may struggle to get any if everything is frozen!
