If you like to feed the birds in your garden but don't want to waste money on expensive bird seed, you can always use leftovers. Birds love all types of bread, but do moisten first if you are leaving it out in crumb form as it can be a little dry. Unsalted bacon and other fats including suet. Baked potatoes, dried fruit such as raisins and sultana's and pastry - raw or cooked are all loved by birds. Its important never to leave salted food out and only to leave small amounts each day, as any uneaten food will attract vermin overnight.
