Have you any winter bird feeding recipes?

Any winter bird feeding recipes are welcome.

I’m sure there must be many different ways we all feed birds, not just  by putting bird seed out. 

Here’s one I received in January

Hi Trish and everybody,

 my cake is

  •  lard,
  • ground sunflower
  •  and peanuts, also whole ones
  • all put together with currants and sultanas,

They go down a treat,

I had 9 long tail tits here today,
Not seen thrushes around, am worried,,mum used to come into workshop in breeding season, but offspring not so keen,,

Keep up the feeding everyone, we will get them through,,

Have 5 or 6 blue tits roosting in a nest box they have used twice to breed in,, dont know if the same family have moved in,,R

NEVER USE VEGETABLE OIL TO MAKE A BIRD CAKE. ALWAYS USE FAT/ LARD OR DRIPPING

R is right IF WE KEEP UP THE BIRD FEEDING WE WILL HELP GET THE BIRDS THROUGH THE WINTER

Look forward to receiving some new bird feeding ideas

Human Muesli for Birds?

Shirley says ‘am thinking that human muesli could be quite good’ 
This is in reply to the post below about recipes for a tasty meal for birds
I think Shirley is right.  Blackbirds and thrushes especially will love it.
Have you any winter bird feeding recipies?   It would be great to hear if you have, as winter is drawing near and bird feeding is becoming more important
