Haven for Wildlife

Even on a wet Morning as I look out from the kitchen,there’s always so much going on in our garden probably because we live on the edge of open countryside. Starlings and Sparrows seem to love the gardens especially if we put out some seed or even some bread. Other varieties also make appearances from time to time making even a raining day special.

Encouraging birds to any garden is easy if you do just a few simple things. Provide them with shelter in the form of trees, hedges and shrubs, add a few nest boxes, make sure there is a clean source of water and of course, feed them. It’s also really important to make sure there is plenty of natural invertebrate food for many different species including warblers in the summer, but also for nestlings when birds are breeding and this means avoiding pesticides of all types in the garden.
