Here's a guide to attract birds to your garden ready to count them for the world's largest wildlife survey, Big Garden Birdwatch, taking place 29th-31st January. It can take a little bit of time for birds to get used to a new feeder, so aim to stock up soon ready for the end of the month.

🐦Blackbirds mostly feed on the ground and will eat anything – from fatty nibbles to mealworms
🐦 Blue tits and great tits use a feeder, eating seeds as well as suet and peanuts
🐦 Finches, including chaffinches and greenfinches, use both a feeder and a bird table, and they love sunflower hearts
🐦 Robins are natural ground feeders. Make a mixture of bird seed, sunflower hearts and mealworms and sprinkle it out on a tray.

You can put out leftovers such as some bread, fruit cake, dried fruit, unsalted nuts, or fruit such as apples and pears. Don’t use anything mouldy or salty though, and if you have a dog don’t put out dried fruit – vine fruits such as raisins can be toxic to them.

Aim to put your bird feeders and tables somewhere:
🐦 Quiet – where birds won't be disturbed
🐦 Safe – not too close to bushes where cats could hide in wait, but close enough for cover that birds can easily dart to and from
🐦 Sheltered from harsh winds.

Wherever you place your feeder, make sure you can see it when you’re indoors so you can get the most pleasure from it!

Remember the water!
Birds like a drink too. You don't need a traditional bird bath, you can try a dinner plate or breakfast bowl or even a large plant pot tray – anything shallow that holds water will do.
And remember to:
🐦 Keep it clean
🐦 Put out fresh water every day
🐦 Pour warm water onto any ice that forms in the winter, birds need water all year round.
