Nesting garden birds like robins, wrens and blackbirds use a variety of materials to construct their nests.
By using things like moss, pet hair and short bits of wool, you can make a nesting ball for garden birds.
Positioned near a feeding station, it'll help attract birds to your garden and they can take the materials they need from it. Simply refill as needed over the nesting period, then keep your wire framework to use again next year.
