Litter picking whilst out running

Myself and my husband decided to pick up any litter that we saw along our run in the early morning. Even down a quiet country lane we found discarded drink cans and polystyrene coffee cups.

These items are left due to laziness and can easily cause harm to the local wildlife. Please be sure to discard litter in the bin.

Crush tin cans before recycling

The Wildlife Aid Foundation see so many animals, each year, that have become trapped in litter, such as tin cans. This type of discarded litter has sharp edges and can cause nasty injuries to wildlife whilst they’re out on the hunt for food.

Be sure to crush your tins and containers before recyling them properly. You could help save your local wildlife!

Create your own window decoration to prevent birds from flying in to them

Birds’ eyes are on the sides of their heads, which is extremely useful in spotting predators or potential mates. However, this makes it rather hard for them to focus on the scene directly in front of them. This, along with the reflective glass, makes it extremely easy for them to mistake windows for the sky.

By getting creative with materials you have around the house, you can make your own decorations to place on the windows, to break up any reflections.

Here’s just one idea for creating window stickers:

  • Add a few drops of food colouring to a bottle of PVA glue and mix well.
  • Draw designs with the coloured glue on a clear plastic surface. You can use a folder or children’s table mat, but remember the colouring may bleed.
  • Lay the plastic on a flat surface and allow the glue to dry completely.
  • Once the glue is dry, you can peel it off of the plastic and position it on your favourite window!

If you don’t have any glue, simply have the kids draw beautiful pictures on to a sheet of paper, cut them out and stick them to the window using tape!
