#CountryKids What do to with your prize coconut!
As I mentioned on Saturday my daughter won a coconut at the village Fayre. Now I hate coconut and my children weren't too keen on trying it so what to do? Well we have lots of birds coming into our garden so why not let them have it?
First of all we had a relative drill a hole to extract the "milk". Two brave adults (incuding me) had a sip *yuck* - most of liquid ended up poured down the drain! Then the coconut was put in a plastic bag and taken back to the workshop...
Quite some time later we were presented with a blue tit friendly feeder to hang under our bird table:
There were also plenty of chunks for my son to put on the table itself:
He is now keen to see if any birds actually come and eat it! Watch this space...
