If you are looking for something completely different, and natural to feed the birds in your garden this year, then you'll love our handmade bird feeder, filled with peanuts.
Each one is made from logs from carefully managed UK deciduous woodlands, which are hand-selected and cut to shape to make the most of the natural features, branches and shape. Each one is totally unique in shape and size but is approximately 30-32cm long and between 5 and 8cm diameter. They could be made from oak, ash, beech, cherry or whatever is being felled locally - not pines of softwood though, and each one is made for us.
Once cut into logs, they are carefully cut and hollowed out, and a mesh fixed over the void to keep peanuts in and give the birds something to perch on. To allow easy refilling, a hole is drilled near the top, and a recycled wine-bottle cork used to block this hole while still allowing for easy removal and refilling (and as an extra perch!)
It comes pre-filled with peanuts, and can easily be hung in trees, bird feeder stands or walls. A lovely very long-lasting and eco-friendly alternative to plastic or metal feeders, it will look great for many years, blends in beautifully to a natural garden and makes a great feeder as well as a unique gift.
Our feathered friends bring a whole variety of benefits - controlling pests such as insects, and it's a joy to see them making a home in your garden too. What's more, you'll help to protect some of our most-loved and threatened wild birds, with the absolute minimum of expense and effort!
