Wow you have been busy and great to hear you are having such a good time.
Thanks again for all your time and input as a volunteer.

In reply to Alan Murray:
Just spent a lovely day on the stand at the Slate Museum in Llanberis. We were running a workshop for kids on the theme of "Feed the Birds", making rings of fruit and 'Cheerios' to hang trees and bushes.
It was fairly frantic at times with loads of families enjoyng themselves. I was very interested that almost all said they had feeders in the garden and many appreciated ideas we were giving them for making their own!
"Feed the Birds" does really seem to be an accepted part of life for most people now and helping them to give the right foods in the right way is an important job for the RSPB. I am going to make a poster about the dangers of the nets that are still being sold on fat balls and peanuts which I hope we can use on our stands and at the bird sanctuary where I also volunteer.
God gave us two ears and one mouth for a very good reason!
In reply to Lolly_24:
That's a very good idea Lolly! It would not be very expensive for the RSPB to do, if it was just put online as a jpeg that we could download. I hope someone picks up this idea. I'll mention it when I go into the Conwy Reserve next and see if the staff there could pass it up the line and make sure someone thinks about it.
Yes Lolly I think they would.
I have seen yur thread and between us we could keep pushing it up till we get a response from the Moderators.
That's exactly what I've been thinking! Let's hope someone sees this and responds. If not i think I'll write to head office if you don't object.
lorraine r said:I also thought that if the Rspb designed a poster with their logo on it and made it available for the community to download I am positive the members would print some out and distribute them in their local shops. I know it would be more expense for the RSPB but such an excellent cause.
Hi Lolly/Jenny - Interesting discussion here regarding netted fat balls & posters relating to these. This is a discussion which seems to be going on elsewhere too, so you might like to check out Ian's reply here
Thanks Carol! I've read Ian's post and I'm pleased our idea is receiving consideration.
Another brill idea Lolly! :-))
You're good you know!
