~ Lard balls ~
I made up these lard balls for our local bird population.  They take about 5 minutes: melt a packet of lard (I used Tesco's Value lard) and stir in RSPB-approved nuts and sunflower seeds. Form in to ball shapes and place on greaseproof paper to set. Your garden's birds will love them.

The Scottish bird population loves homemade fat balls too :0)

I have always been too lazy and bought them ready made! You're right tho' the birds love them!
