Uncover snowy patches for hungry birds

When winter arrives, snow fall can enormously restrict a garden birds access to food. Usually feasting on small insects under leaves and worms hiding in the soil, they find themselves struggling to break through the snow.
Next time it snows, be sure to clear a few patches in your garden or whilst out on a walk. You’ll be helping many birds survive the winter.

Here’s a handy guide from the RSPCA, to show you the best foods to leave out too. Click here!

Create a bird box for your garden

The bird nesting season begins on the 1st March through until the end of July. However, you may start to see your garden birds beginning to gather nesting materials a little earlier.
By creating a bird box and placing it in your garden, you’ll be making a new home for at least one of your local birds.

For a great guide, visit the National Trust website and follow their steps to the perfect nest box, here. If you want to attract a specific species, for example, a blue tit or a black bird, see the image above for the perfect sized entrance hole.
