Choosing bird food
If you want to be certain that you’re providing your garden birds with good nutritious food, we recommend that you choose a reputable brand that you can have confidence in.
And importantly, how will you prevent large birds and squirrels making off with the food intended for small garden birds? Our advice is to choose a robust feeder that the large birds can’t peck through, or even one with a metal cage to prevent the squirrels getting at the food!
Keep the birds safe
- Think about where you position the feeder or table – open spaces make it difficult for lurking cats or foxes to hide!
- Choose a well-made bird table or feeder, so that there are no sharp edges or small spaces that could damage their delicate feet.
- Clean out food trays and containers regularly to avoid the risk of infection.
A bird table or a bird station?
Some customers prefer the traditional bird table whilst others opt for the more modern bird station pictured here. Whatever you choose, place them in a quiet spot that’s sheltered from weather.
Once the birds learn that this is a safe and convenient place to find food, they’ll visit your garden regularly!
- If you know which types of birds might have their young in your garden, choose a nest box with the appropriate size of hole for their species
- If you’re not certain, choose a multi-nester that’ll suit different birds
- Position the nest box so the birds have a clear line of flight to it
- Fix the box to a wall or tree, making sure it’s out of reach of inquisitive humans or predators!
