At this time of year the birds really benefit from a bit of extra food so what better way than to make them bird food cake. In this workshop the group will learn all about the birds in your grounds, how they have adapted to eat different foods and easy ways to recognize and identify them. Each child will get the chance to get their hands mucky making a bird food cake using lard and a mixture of interesting ingredients. Groups to supply mixing bowls, clean yoghurt pots and aprons for this activity please.
