Feeding leftovers to wild birds

Whilst you’re making your Christmas list, don’t forget to put something in for your garden birds. Whilst some leftovers, such as unsalted nuts and dried fruit can be good for birds, others such as turkey fat can be very harmful. It sticks to feathers, preventing water being expelled and warmth being retained.

Lateral thinking puzzle #4

Some of the puzzles you’ll find here require only a small leap of perception. Others need deep and detailed thought. We’ll give you the answers once you’ve had time to furrow your brow and annoy your family! 

Here’s number four, followed by the answer to the last one:

My friend Sally told me that her grandmother was younger than her mother.

Could this be true?

Answer will be here on 13th December

 

PUZZLE #3: 

A carrot, a football scarf and five buttons were found in a field. Nobody placed them there. So how did they get there?

They are the remains of a snowman after the thaw.

PUZZLE #2: 

Detective Sergeant Smith turned up at the station slightly later than intended. He didn’t start working, he just looked at his watch, sighed and went home. His chief wasn’t a stickler for punctuality, so why the change of heart?

It was a train station. It was his day off, and he’d missed the train.
