This years colour for nests!

I had a Mistletoe kit this year and put up the seeds and marked them in the trees with the provided coloured tags and string.
Today I found the tags on the ground as the string has been unravelled and probably used for nest material!
Orange must be this years colour!!!!

    The first time I did the kit I tied on all the labels lovingly. A year later there was no sign of any of them.

    A few years ago I made a frame out of hazel poles to grow beans.  The birds managed to nick nearly all of the twine!  I couldn't believe it as I had tied it quite tightly,
