A busy garden is a happy one. Nothing beats waking up to birds singing in the garden or watching a bird happily splash around in a bird bath. If you're looking to attract more birds into your garden here are our top tips to help you.
Birds need food provided for them in the colder months as the earth is harder for them to peck into. The food needs to be in a safe place, closer enough to shelter for the birds if they spot a predator but far enough from low lying shelter that predators such as cats can sneak up on them. It also helps to have trees or shrubs which have fruits or berries on them.
Provide Clean Drinking Water
Clean drinking and bathing water is essential for birds all year round.
Keep the Garden Clean

If you attract insects to your garden for the birds to feed on. Insects are attracted to flowers. Flowers are a great way to add colour to your garden as well as supporting the eco system.
