Giving birds a little extra food is a simple and fun way to help, especially when natural sources are low. Making cakes for the birds is great, sticky fun and is irresistible for many garden birds! Hang them from your garden trees, or on your balcony and watch your neighbourhood birds discover them.
Remember to take photos whilst making the cake, and of the birds flocking to your patch to eat it! You can share your picture with other Backyard Nature Guardians by tagging us @BackyardNatUK and using the hashtags #BackyardNature and #FeedTheBirds.

Not suitable for children with nut allergies. Note that bird seed, including peanuts bought for birds, is not suitable for human consumption.
If you are allergic to nuts, try this without adding peanuts – and make sure your bird seed doesn’t contain nuts. Be careful when you are using the scissors. Ask an adult to help if you need to.
