5 Quick Autumn Bird Care Tips
1. Use high energy seed
In colder months birds need additional nutrition, add variety with suet balls, pellets or mealworms.
2. Increase the number of feeders
As natural sources of food become depleted, increase the number of feeders to ensure birds get adequate food. Don’t forget to top up regularly.
3. Maintain a clean supply of water
Water is vital to birds and can be delivered by drinkers or bird baths. Remember to keep them ice free during the colder months.
4. Site nest boxes early
Birds will spot nest boxes during the winter before nesting in the following spring.
5. Provide birds with shelter
Hedges and trees provide beautiful, natural shelter. If you have less space, you could add a bird box to a wall or patch of ground in a quiet area.
