Greedy Birds!

Visitors to my Fold studio will know that I also have regular feathered friends who visit daily! Goldfinches, blue tits, great tits, coal tits, long tailed tits, green finches, chaffinches, robins, dunnocks, blackbirds & collared doves all love to munch on the sunflower seed & peanuts I put out. This is turning out to be an expensive hobby....I buy the seed in bulk online from street end feeds who are pretty reasonable & it's British seed. So I thought I'd be a bit cheeky & put out a donation box to help with the costs!

I bought an inexpensive box (which was a rather bright blue colour originally) - painted it white, stamped on the lettering & attached one of my copper & brass decorative birdies. I think it's rather cute & I might make another one just to have at home (without the donation bit obviously!).
