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.

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.
