mery christmas from really wild bird food

First published in the eighteenth-century, the Christmas carol "The Twelve Days of Christmas" remains a firm favourite amongst festive folk to this day! There have been many theories about the carol and its hidden meanings, one of which suggests the song was used to help teach Catholics the principles of their faith.

One thing's for certain, this festive Christmas carol features birds. Lots of them! Let's meet some of our festive feathered friends and find out more about them. And yes, we do want you to sing along as you read this blog! More...

connecting with nature in your home office

Remote working is quickly becoming a normal way of living for a lot of us! Understandably, people are doing whatever they can to make the home office a stress-free environment so that they can concentrate on being productive! 

Unfortunately, working from home can make people feel very isolated.
