Feeding the birds

<span style=\"font-size: 12px;\"><span style=\"font-family: verdana,geneva,sans-serif;\">Are you feeding the birds this winter? Whilst this Robin and our Wrens will do fine coming into buildings and finding spiders and insects, many species that feed out in the fields are being short-changed by modern farming techniques. We have several acres of barley which is being left in the fields until the spring specifically for bird food. It is already attracting large numbers of Yellowhammers, with Reed Buntings and other seed eaters enjoying both the food and the shelter offered by a partially standing crop.
