Our regular morning visitor the friendly hen pheasant.
We place three heaps of cous cous around the garden for those birds who are ground feeders, for their anatomy is such that they are unable feed from the hanging feeders. These birds are the Robin, Thrush, Blackbird and Pheasant.
To prepare the cous cous we put a small amount dried grain into a bowl, pour on hot water and let it stand until it has swollen up.
Excess water is then strained off with the whole process taking about 5 minutes.
The cous cous is left to stand until cool before putting it out for the birds.
Mrs H gets great pleasure from putting out this feed as she is eagerly awaited by the robins and a blackbird who follows her around the garden.
