Make your garden bird-friendly
The number one thing you can do to support your garden birds is to make sure you have bird food. If possible try to offer a range of bird food such as Sunflower Hearts, Suet Balls and Seed Mixes but if not, even just one bird feeder can make a change and provide a vital food source for garden birds. Our top picks for starter bird feeders are the Fallen Fruits Three In One Bird Feeder, or the Jacobi Jayne Get Set Go Seed Feeder.
A bird friendly garden should also provide birds with clean water to drink and bathe in. A bird bath is a great way to ensure birds have access to drinking water as well as somewhere to splash about in to clean their feathers. Check out our Bird Bath Guide for our top picks for your garden.
When landscaping your garden, try to ensure that at least part is grass. Although decking or gravel can look good, by leaving your garden as grass you are providing the perfect insect buffet for birds to feed on.
Birds need shelter to not only protect themselves from the elements and predators, but also as somewhere to lay their eggs during breeding season. To help support garden birds you could purchase a Bird Box with sizes and colours to suit any garden, or you could even try to build your own!
