When the weather was sunny I decided it was time to make some birdseed treats for the lovely animals that inhabit our garden. The initial recipe came from a post on craftgawker that can be viewed here. I had to amend it a bit as it is a bit tricky to get hold of corn syrup in England.
After many efforts i finally managed a mix that stuck together! I used some buckwheat flour instead of corn syrup and that seemed to do the job!
The ones that weren't so good were left out for the squirrels, and they had a fabulous time! In fact I managed to capture a whole squirrel story on camera.
|Squirrell 1 : Yaaay, seeds all for me!|
|Squirrel 1 : Nom nom nom|
|Squirrel 2: ATTACK!|
Squirrel 1: EEK!
|Squirrel 1 : The cheek of it! They were my seeds!|
|Squirrel 2 : Mwahahaha! The seeds are mine now!|
|Squirrel 1: I must get those seeds back if its the last thing I do!|
|Squirrel 1: If I can just sneak up here without him seeing me...|
|Squirrel 1 : "Nibble nibble"|
Squirrel 2 : Oops, I've just remembered I've left the oven on, better go!
|Squirrel 1: Hurrah, he's gone! Seeds all for me again!|
So it all turned out well in the end. Squirrels are hilarious, we had one stuck in the conservatory the other day, he was having a whale of a time knocking everything over. I wonder if it was one of these two, back for more treats.
