I have to admit there have been occasions when we have run out of Muesli that I have seriously considered plundering my stash of Haith’s wholesome seed mixes and trying it for breakfast.
That is the question. And this is the answer: Yes. Feed. Feed in winter, spring, autumn and yes summer. That’s the one that still seems to surprise some people. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is during the summer months that we should actually increase the amount of food we put out.

So what’s my favourite bird? The swallow. Always has been and I suspect it always will be. They look good at a distance – sleek, streamlined miniature jet planes – and they look good close up –a charming red bib, eyes as big and dark as a baby seals, a beak set in a permanently benign smile, and a cheery jumble of a song that is the very definition of the word “twitter”. But it’s not how they sound or look, it’s what they do.
Well, for a start that depends on what latitude you live at. As far as Britain is concerned, the first signs of spring can be immediately in the New Year if you happen to live on the south coast of England, particularly in Devon or Cornwall.
