The hedges and trees seem to be heavy with fruit and nuts at this time of year, however with the constant loss of valuable habitat and ever increasing growth of urban areas, food can quickly become hard to find. Feeding the birds now and continuing through the winter gives our precious local birds a lifeline they can depend on in the harshest months when many of our tiny birds have to eat their body weight every day to survive the cold nights. Imagine having to eat around 24 burgers every day! If the local wren, blue tit and robin can depend on your well stocked feeder, they have every chance of surviving to the winter.
Feeding the birds is our second pledge for wildlife, see them all here.
