A Stir-Up Sunday for the birds

Stir-up Sunday is that age-old festive tradition that brings the family together to stir the Christmas cake, making wishes as they do.

Our version is a Stir-Up Sunday for nature, making bird seed cakes to help our feathered friends.

With food harder to come by for birds in the harsh winter months, a little help can certainly go a long way.

For just £1, you can mix a tasty ball of fat and seeds which gives birds the nutrients they need to stay strong as the temperatures plummet.

Take it home and create a little foody sanctuary in your outdoor space for your feathered friends this winter.

Learn about caring for birds in the winter on the RSPB website.

Parking costs just £5 per vehicle per day at Sherwood for non-RSPB members, and helps the RSPB to carry out its vital conservation work, but there is no admission charge to enter the reserve.
