Helping Long-Tailed Tits, which start making their nests early. Astonishingly, they need 1,500- 2,500 downy feathers to line every nest. If you can get hold of any feathers, put them out in a feeder or net with small enough mesh to contain them and big enough for the Long-tailed Tits to collect them. As well as helping them, it is fun watching them gathering as many as they can at once, as these photo’s in our garden show. Condition: Mild and cloudy. Temperature: Max 12- Min 8C.
