Well folks, I’ve utterly neglected the blog for several weeks and can’t believe it’s 2019 already, and another week of  Country Kids, the outdoor linky co-hosted by Louise from Little Hearts Big Love, Helena from Queen of Collage and me here at Kids of the Wild.

At Kids of the Wild This Week

We’ve enjoyed some uplifting hill walks over Christmas which I’ll be writing about soon though you may have noticed I’ve not done much writing for some time…

For this week’s Country Kids I’ve updated and shared my family bird feeding post, how to feed garden birds all year round. 

Bird feeding is a great way to encourage wildlife encounters with your children at home. It includes a link to sign up for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, happening in the last week of January.

There are also more great book reviews to check out, ideal to spend on those Christmas book tokens.
