It might be wet, soggy and a little grey outside but it's actually the perfect time of the year to encourage birds into your garden. It's not hard, but it's so rewarding.

  • Feeders : Hang up a variety of feeders, seeds, nuts, and fat balls are popular in our garden. Each encourages a different bird into the garden. You can even make your own feeders using lard, seeds, nuts and raisins.

  • Bird baths : During the winter months check the water hasn't frozen over and top up regularly.

  • Bird boxes : We have a few in our garden some gorgeous wooden beach hut style ones high up on the house so our cat can't get them! We also have our homemade milk carton ones dotted around too.

It shouldn't take too long before you start to see lots of birds hanging out. So why not develop your child's interest further with a Wild and Wonderful Bird Watching Kit (RRP: £12.99)

What's inside?
24 identification cards, mini folding binoculars, notebook and pencil, feeding recipes and tips.

This half term has been a wash out with rain and a very poorly Megan, but Moo has still had fun with his bird watcher kit.

Using the notebook and identification cards start listing what birds you see. The cards also give details about what they eat and some specific characteristics. We have been visited recently and now daily by a nuthatch, Charlie used the cards to identify what they were eating and why they hang upside down and the usefulness of their odd shaped bill. You can then tailor your feed to try and encourage new birds type if you want. It's interesting to see what is popular in the garden, we find milliworms get left in piles untouched!

  1. This looks fab - I can't encourage any birds into our garden as our cat is a heck of a hunter and loves birds - the side of cats I hate :( Kaz

  2. That is a great price for something that sounds like it will keep the kids entertained and help them learn as well. My kids are convinced that all birds are finches at the moment after reading a book about them but perhaps this could change their minds! Might have to have a word with Father Christmas about it ;)

  3. We had loads of birds in the garden over the summer enjoying the bird feeders but since the weather changed we've had hardly any :( I'm still putting food out though just in case a hungry one flies by.

  6. What a lovely kit. We love being out in the garden - we have a woodpecker that visits daily. Would love to learn more about birds.

  9. LOVE THIS!! We've spent a fair bit of time at RSPB reserves lately and I'm amazed at how calming bird-watching is for my daughter.

  11. We should do some more bird watching. We have quite a lot of birds for a town garden as we are near to a lot of green space.

  12. My mum always puts bread out 'for the birds' and enjoys them in her garden. I think children would love to use this kit to bird-watch!
