Glorious food Install a bird table or hanging feeder with a selection of tasty treats, seed mixes or fat balls for energy. Clean feeding areas regularly with dilute bleach and water.


In the swim Water is essential both to drink and to wash in. Regular bathing will keep feathers clean and fluffy for insulation on cold winter nights.


Home sweet home When tidying the garden, think ahead to spring. Leave a few tangled shrubs for bird's nests; invertebrates will overwinter there too, providing a nutritious snack for young birds.
