First visitors on Slate Bird table



Received this wonderful review and we are plsd to read the new Birdtable is well received.

‘We have really been enjoying watching the first visitors to our fabulous new bird table. It’s a great design and really makes a statement. Our neighbour donated a sturdy pole and with half a bag of postcrete in the hole the bird table is as steady as a rock. Thank you both so much – Gerard for your amazing design and construction skills and Jeanette for all the customer liaison you do so brilliantly behind the scenes. Slate and Nature is a wonderful company to buy from.’
