Where to Site

Site your feeder 2 metres from cover, such as trees or shrubs, making the feeder visible, whilst providing a safe place to retreat

Put out food at the start of the day to ensure that birds can replace the energy they have lost overnight

Feeding Tips

With food resources scarcer now, it is essential to feed garden birds all year round

Once you have started to feed the birds it is important to continue this, and develop a routine, as the birds will become reliant upon your help

Provide food throughout the whole year especially during breeding, nesting and fledgling periods.

Locate feeders stations near cover so that they’re easily accessible, but not too close if there is a risk of predators

Hygiene

Always ensure garden birds have plenty of fresh clean water for drinking and bathing

Clean feeding and drinking areas regularly with a mild disinfectant

Keep food fresh and dry, removing any wet food to prevent the spread of bacteria and diseases

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why are the birds not visiting my feeders?

A. It is not uncommon for birds to take some time to visit new feeders or food that is offered. It can be down to the species in your area and other food resources that are available. Provide some cover for the birds and ensure fresh drinking water is available.

Q. Why are the birds discarding some seeds?

A. Wild birds are selective over what they eat and when. It is not that they do not like it but they might have another source or they don’t need it right now. Never remove or stop feeding these seeds as shortages can happen at any time.

Q. How should I position my feeder?

A. Locate feeders near cover so that they’re easily accessible, but not too close if there is a risk of predators.

Q. Where do all the birds go in late summer?

A. Many will notice less activity at this time. It is unlikely the birds have gone away but in late summer, birds have finished their breeding season which is their busiest time. Many birds will be moulting to replace plumage, so when losing these feathers they are more vulnerable so they stay more concealed then normal. They wont sing as much and won’t feel the need to defend their territory so it seems as they have gone away. Continue to feed at this time as food shortages can happen at any time of year.
