Ages ago, the lovely people at Wilko sent us a wild bird garden pack to encourage little cheepies into our garden.

Unfortunately, the worst month of weather hit and, at the farm, you can magnify any bad weather by ten.

So the last week, I got all the stuff ready, one of the farm lads built my bird table (he said it was really easy to do) and put the nesting box high up on a tree.

I hung a cage feeder on the tree near the hall window to act as a kind of hide and I waited.

I left my camera on the window sill and I usually always have my phone on me.

I waited.

A little wagtail tit kept taunting me-going for some seeds and then, sensing me near, flying off so, one frosty morning, while Hubster was warm inside with the kids, I put my coat over my nightie and I sat there.

Despite the freezing temperatures leaving me questioning my sanity, I was rewarded.

First I spotted a blue tit peeping into the nesting box. I held in my squeal and began snapping away. Then his friend arrived and started checking out the wire feeder.

Then, to my sheer delight, a little robin came along, sitting on my washing line (eyeing up the grub the bluetits were tasting) and then went and sat on Baby G’s swing.

It was lovely.

Since then, I have wrapped up again and again to see what birds come into our garden. So far, I have spotted blackbirds, magpies and a goldfinch. I was so excited.

I used to have a bird spotting book when I was a little girl and I would love to pass on that love to my children.

Thanks to Wilko, I can.

We were sent a bird house which is currently half price at £2.50, a pack of wild bird seed, £6, a wild bird wooden table which is £10 and a Wild bird cage seed feeder which is £6.

Not only do the products help to attract wildlife to the garden but they actually look really lovely too.

I am now keeping everything crossed that we get chicks in our bird house. I will keep you posted.
