Help birds in winter

Make fat cakes for the birds

by Rhiannon James

Once the weather starts to turn wintry, many birds abandon the countryside for the cosier comforts of towns and cities. One way to give them a warm welcome when they arrive is to put out fat cakes which are full of the energy they need to survive the cold. You can buy ready-made ones but it’s cheaper, and a lot more satisfying, to make your own.
