Regularly clean out & move bird feeders

Bird feeders are one of the small ways in which everyone can help their local wildlife. however, its very important to keep them clean to prevent the spread of diseases.

Simply pop on a pair of rubber gloves and give your feeders a scrub using a mild detergent. After rinsing them thoroughly, make sure you let them dry out naturally before refilling and hanging up.

Create a DIY Bird Bath

To make a bird bath that’s safe and accessible, it needs to have shallow, sloping sides, be as wide as possible, and have a maximum depth of 10cm.  An old dustbin lid or large shallow plant saucer are good options.

Once you’ve found your bath, follow the easy steps below:

  1. Choose where you want to place your bird bath
  2. Make the surface nice a level so the bath won’t tip over
  3. Place your chosen bath on to the surface and fill with stones, pebbles, large marbles etc. This is to stop the bird getting completely soaked through or stuck.
  4. Finally fill the bath with water and hey presto!
