Boxing Day is a day for snacking and sharing. The redwings suggest you place a few tasty treats on your tree (out of the reach of pets!) to feast upon during the day. Remember to put a few treats out for our feathered friends too!
It’s Christmas Eve and hopefully your tree is fully dressed and festive! This helpful Wisley redwing is demonstrating the perfect way to hide a few gifts among the branches and decorations on your tree. When you leave some food out for Santa and his reindeer don’t forget to top up the bird feeders!
The redwings suggested that while you’re dressing the tree you check the balance of the decorations, every now and then, by taking a step back and looking at the overall effect. Although berries are still plentiful, please keep feeding the birds over the coming days and weeks. I’m scheduling a few more posts from the Wisley redwings so that I can take a break over the rest of the festive period. I hope you’ll enjoy them and have a very Happy Midwinter Feast, wherever you are in the World, and however you choose to celebrate at this time of the year.
The Wisley redwings have their third bit of advice for dressing the tree this Christmas! Once the tree is perfectly placed the next step is to start hanging the baubles up. All the birds agree that red is an excellent colour 😉
Hope you’re all having a cosy winter solstice. The shortest day of the year was a dark and dismal one here! Don’t forget to feed the birds, you may get a lovely song of thanks as I did today from our local robin.
