The outdoor spaces of your home are a really versatile zone. They can be used for great events like barbecues and parties, but they also are home to all manner of creatures that can be a joy to welcome.
One of the most regular and pleasant visitors are birds, with these feathered friends coming back time and again if you have something that interests them.
If this is something that appeals to you, we’ve put together a few handy hints and tips to help bring more birds to your garden, allowing you to enjoy the spectacle of their visit.
1. Get The Right food
Wild birds are always on the lookout for delicious snacks and one of the main reasons they’ll head to your garden is in search of a tasty treat.
You can easily meet their needs with our bird food. We have bags of mealworms, fat balls, hi-energy peanut and birdseed. So it’s really easy to get the kind of bird food you need to attract the right attention.
2. Add A Place To Drink
Birds need water as much as they need food, and if you don’t have a suitable water point then they might not pay your garden a visit.
A birdbath is a good route to go down, providing birds with a place to not only drink but to wash easily too.
3. Feeders & Equipment
The best way of storing any food you bring to your garden to attract birds is in handy feeders or bird stations.
This makes it easy for birds to enjoy delicious food and come back time and again to treat themselves.
There’s also this excellent bird station that comes with feeders that can allow you to easily provide the food and water your winged friends need.
4. Place Them In Safe Places
When placing your feeders or bird station, be mindful of where you’re locating them. If a bird feels they are in any danger, they aren’t likely to try your feeders in case something unwanted happens to them.
So try to locate your items in places that feel low risk for birds. This isn’t always 100% possible, so the best thing to do is to locate them where any bird can see danger coming a safe way off.
5. Sit Back & Enjoy
If you get all the food, water and equipment you need to attract wild birds to your garden, it’s simply a case of sitting back and enjoying their visits.
A pair of binoculars can help you study the birds that do visit in closer detail. Also, try to make sure to stay on top of the food levels in any feeders you have in your garden.
