After last year’s success of our small slate ‘flat pack’ XM tree, we now have larger sizes available; A specially designed 3-D tree and a slate tree on a wooden trunk. They all have 20 lights, which are battery powered (batteries included). Please contact us if you are interested: firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on Facebook.
The Balcony Birdtable. A smaller birdtable to be hung on a wall in a smaller surrounding, like a balcony, court yard etc. The bidtable can also stand free on a ledge, or cill. Not entirely objective, but I do like Gerard’s latest creation; Ideal if you don’t have the space for a free standing bird table or if you just want to something attractive on your wall (it hangs with one screw on the wall).
Tiny but essential in a UK Garden, the Wren. Finally Gerard made a home for one of my favourite, smallest but also loudest birds in our garden. Our Wren box, like all our bird boxes, can easily be hung on every wall or tree/shrub. It can be cleaned, by taken one of the sides off. With pleasure, send everywhere, our Wren boxes are £ 23.50 (excl. postage).

NEW! The Windbreaker; a useful accessory to our bird tables. In very windy conditions the seed will ‘literally’ go very quickly as wind gets a hold of it; it will be eaten on the ground and that is not desirable. With a pair of Windbreakers, the seed will remain on the bird table. No tools, no glue and it will RETROFIT on ALL our S&N ‘octagon’ the bird tables I made in the past 5+ years; free-standing, hanging, table versions etc.
A pair can be ordered (£16.- ex P&P – price March 2017).
