Don't drape curtains over radiators - you end up heating the air by the window instead of your room.

Yep, mine go over my banisters upstairs...I would dearly love one of them old fashioned airers that you pulled up high over the stairs.

Leave out old apples for winter thrushes such as fieldfare and redwing from Scandinavia.

Winter food for the birds.

The best ratio for this recipe is one part fat to two parts dry mixture. Mix all your dry ingredients together in a bowl. Melt some lard or suet in a pan and add the dry mix. Stir well until the fat has all been absorbed and the mixture sticks together.
Make a hole in the bottom of a yoghurt pot and thread through a length of twine or string, then pack the pot with your warm fat mixture.
Place in the fridge overnight to set, then cut through and peel away the pot. Tie a big knot at one end of the twine to secure the cake.
Hang the cake in a tree or shrub and wait for the birds to come and feast.

Good bird recipe Barbie.

Move bird feeders from time to time so predators don't learn to use them as a takeaway.

Don't leave out cooking fat for birds as the grease damages their feathers.  Try try fat balls or Christmas cake crumbs.

Use a wormery to turn kitchen waste into rich compost and fertiliser.

Comb your cat or dog hair and leave the fur out for nesting material.

Put up the nest boxes, the birds are beginning to flirt.
