Feed the birds throughout winter
As winter begins to bite hard, birds quickly struggle to find their usual natural food sources such as worms, insects, seeds, fruit and berries, so the food you put out for them will keep them nourished through the lean times.
Try to provide a range of bird seed (sunflower hearts, niger seed etc) and unsalted peanuts, as well as table scraps of cheese, apples and pears. A handful of dried mealworms will go down a treat too.
Put Out Fresh Water
It’s easy to assume that our wildlife can get water anywhere but that’s not the case, especially not during freezing conditions. Put out a shallow bowl of fresh water, up high for birds to safely drink. Bird baths as are a really useful asset to have in the garden.
