Now that summer is here I like nothing better than sitting out in the garden enjoying the long summer evenings, with a glass of prosecco in one hand and an abundance of food within easy reach. There is so much wildlife to see, from the insects busy pollenating the flowers to the birds that frequent our garden, I could actually spend all day watching the world go by.
Gee loves all animals and birds so when she was sent a fun Bumble Bee bird feeder from the lovely people at ChapelWood, she was really looking forward to hanging it in our tree. Obviously this had to be out of harms way from killer cat. The feeder is ideal for putting peanuts or sunflower hearts in and is such a fantastic colour and design, it certainly brightens up the garden. ChapelWood also supply wild bird seed which is grown under the ‘Fair to Nature’ scheme which means accredited farms create wildlife habitats on at least 10% of their land helping to reverse the decline in UK wildlife.
Over the last week we have had numerous visitors to the garden including thrushes, blackbirds, jenny wrens, robins, a mistle thrush, chaffinchs and blue tits to name just a few. In fact Gee is becoming an avid bird watcher, armed with her dad’s binoculars and a notepad, she is methodically recording all the different types of birds who visit the feeder. I definitely think we have had more visitors than usual and they are amazing to watch. I am just so disappointed that I could not get a photograph of birds on the feeder, every time I got near they flew away.
Gee loves the cute Bumble Bee and he does look rather at home in my tree. You can find out more information about the character bird feeders here and they retail around £7.99.
We were sent this product free of charge for the purpose of this post but the opinion is entirely our won.
