During the winter there are slim pickings for birds to feed on and so adding a bird feeder to your garden is the perfect way to aid in the survival of local birds.
one part dripping
two parts wild bird seed mixed with currants, raisins, rice or pet biscuits
Melt the dripping in a pot and stir in the dry ingredients.
For circular bird cakes, pour the mixture into a muffin try and let them thicken and cool.
For fun shape using cookie cutters, let the mixture thicken slightly before pressing into each mould.
Serve by adding sliced fruit and nuts to your feeder alongside the bird cakes.
