As a member of the RSPB (Royal Soceity for Protection of Birds), I am passionate about our wild birds & love to help them as much as I can. I keep a garden full of shrubs, trees, flowers & provide food & water to help ease the fight they have every year to survive. It is a honour to even vaguely emulate their beauty in my wire pendants.
So, enough waffle....here are 'The Birds,'
The Blue Tit...a favourite little visitor of our UK gardens & they love to peck away at seeds, nuts, insects & caterpillars
The Goldfinch..our most brightly coloured finch. Nyger seed definitely attracts this one, if it's in the vicinity of your garden. Some migrate to Spain in the winter & they're a very sociable bird...just like us Brits!
The Humming Bird...the tiniest of birds, a hovering specialist with an average wing beat of 70 beats per second! Found naturally in the Americas, but as far North as Alaska & as far South as Chile. This wire humming bird pendant necklace is created using enamelled copper wires.
The Kingfisher...the lover of the riverside, looking for fish & waterside insects. Mostly found in Southern England, but can be spotted further North.
The Swallow..can't wait for this summer visitor to return to our courtyard, nesting in the old barns. I know that the good weather is back then! They love to swoop & dive bomb for insects, with most of their time being on the wing.
The British Jay...I finally saw my first Jay ever, just a few weeks ago. This shy bird prefers to hide in woodland, so it was a real honour to catch a glimpse of one flying past with that distinctive flash of sky blue on its wing.
