On Sunday, we headed off to RSPB Fairburn Ings which is about eight miles away from where we live. It's been a regular haunt of ours since Daniel and Eleanor were young as it was an ideal spot for them to feed the ducks and swans.
First of all, we headed to the visitor centre to buy our bird food. We could have taken some bread with us, but it's not nutritious enough as it doesn't contain the ingredients needed to keep the birds healthy. Seed is a much better option and doesn't cost very much.
There's a little cafe area in the visitor centre from where you can watch the garden birds on the feeders right outside. We had Archie with us and we couldn't take him inside, so we watched the garden birds from outside.
