Whilst we are still in the midst of winter our alpacas are very much enjoying their thick fleeces as you can see from the photo's it certainly comes in handy when eating hay on a frosty morning. As many of us still have the heating cranked up, our log fires lit and are wearing our winter warmers we are not the only ones who are wanting to stay cosy at this time of year. There are some little garden visitors that can always do with an extra helping hand in order to build secure and snug nests.
In a recent article from the Woodland Trust https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/naturedetectives/blogs/nature-detectives-blog/2016/02/birds-nest-types-materials/ the general public have been encouraged to collect luxury nesting items such as pet fur, moss, strands of wool and pieces of cloth which can all help birds to make a sturdy and insulated nest this Spring.
Following on from the Woodland Trust's advice we at Yew Tree have found one ultimate nesting material that is incredibly warm, fluffy, easy for birds to stick together and quick to dry and that is of course alpaca fleece! We offer packs of luxury bird nesting material in two different pack sizes either 65g- 70g or 130g - 150g. We also sell our luxury nesting material in a very user friendly holder which you can hang from trees where birds can easily see them.
So why not lend a hand to those busy builders this winter and try our alpaca fleece nesting material, your birds will love it so much they won't ever want to fly the nest!
