Feather­ing the nest

Landscape (UK) - - Our Landscape -

Spring is a busy time for birds. Af­ter work­ing to at­tract a mate, they must build a safe, warm nest in which to lay their eggs and raise their chicks. This pretty wreath is hand­made from duck down feath­ers, or­ganic horse­hair and farm straw, pro­vid­ing plen­ti­ful ma­te­ri­als for for­ag­ing birds to help them in their task. Tits, robins, finches, star­lings and spar­rows will pull fronds from the gar­land, while wrens, dun­nocks and jack­daws gather stray pieces from the ground. Bird nest wreath £19.99, www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ Se­cretGar­denEng­land
