Bird Food Blog
Welcome to the Haith's bird food blog - featuring posts from the team & special guests. If you'd like to share your nature notes with our readers, please email email@example.com for more information.
Today, we're re-opening our Haith's Helpline on the freephone number 0800 298 7054 - we're here (as we have been since 1937) to help you stay connected with nature, but from today we're going to double our efforts to help you stay connected with the outside world should you find yourself feeling isolated due to coronavirus.
When songwriter Paul Simon wrote these lyrics to his song (LEAVES THAT ARE GREEN - 1966) "I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song, I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long. Time hurries on and the leaves that are green turn to brown" he must have been thinking about the passage of time.
With the change in the clocks last weekend it is no surprise that the birds are arriving for food at different times. It’s been pretty dull and damp the last few days in Kent as well, so they have been leaving for the day earlier than they probably would do anyway.
With so many fallen leaves on the ground and those with magnificent colours clinging on to the trees, we’ve been inspired to launch a ‘leaf themed’ photography competition.
There has been slightly less work taking place in my garden during the past week and so the birds are back into their normal routine of eating food at the bird table.
Throughout the COVID-19 lockdown, we encouraged our customers to sit back and become an "Armchair Naturalist" and to share their natural world observations with others to stay connective with the outside world. A number of you went that extra mile and wrote blogs, which we published on our website for all to enjoy.
