  1. Typical ,already got my winter stock of bird feed in so won’t use the 10% discount this time. Maybe next?
    Good fun though.

  2. Great quiz, really informative and good fun. Pleased I scored 9/10. Would be happy to take part in more quizzes.

  3. Nice quiz. Managed 10/10, though 6 and 9 were “educated guesses” and 10 was just a lucky guess. It did make me look up “end of Autumn” after I was done, but the information was quite confusing. Seems we have two choices of when seasons begin and end. Who knew?

  4. Not bad for someone who just feed the Wildlife outside in the Garden. I am not Mrs Thomas’ but her daughter.

  5. Usually don’t bother with quizze’s but this was good with one or two quite difficult questions. Keep up the good work !
    8 or 9 Q correct, not too bad but had to guess 1 or 2.

  6. Really good quiz. Didn’t get them all right but so interesting on the ones I got wrong. If we continue feeding birds through the winter it will help our mental state throughout this dreadful virus, as well as helping birds.

  7. Very good questions. Wasn’t too sure about the Hedgehog question so a guess. More please but without the gifts.

  8. Good questions there, some questions I should have known but put the wrong answer. I didn’t know Robins cashed their food or it was an array of hedgehogs. Very informative,thank you.

  9. Thank you. It’s always good to learn something new and to remind myself to read the question properly! 2000 miles a day would be some feat.

  10. I really enjoyed this quiz (lovely pictures). I learnt some interesting things. It was also nice to be rewarded for my score. Thank you.
