Autumn brings all sorts of changes to your garden, and with it comes a whole bunch of different wildlife visitors, particularly bird species. Garden birds benefit from feeding all year round, but the colder months are a time of vulnerability for them, and therefore it is the perfect opportunity for providing supplementary food.
Of course, with many of this season’s visitors migrating from Northern Europe, and similarly colder climes, they will be seeking better food and warmer shelter.
Interestingly, our gardens use up more land than all the UK nature reserves put together, so they can be a powerful collective tool for helping many of our most beloved bird species. In fact, they serve as ideal feeding and breeding grounds for the likes of starlings, siskins, bramblings, robins, chaffinches and goldcrests, or for them to stop by in the colder months as trees and hedgerows become sparse of food.
