RSPB Feed the Birds Day, Garden birds are hungry, but do not cost the earth to feed them, says the RSPB. The wildlife charity is urging all their aprons and their remains in the food ready for the annual Bird Day on Saturday.
No need to be a wildlife expert or a top chef to provide a nutritious meal for your backyard birds and most of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen cabinets. Channel RSPB Bird Day is a reminder that wildlife garden needs extra help during the cold months ahead.
As the clocks and lush green leaves turn golden, food, water and shelter offered to birds and other wildlife garden could be the difference between life and death.
Birds appreciate your help with extra food throughout the year, but now is the ideal time to reinforce the power back in the gardens at the time of the cold snap.
The RSPB suggests throwing diets out the window when it comes to feeding your garden visitors.
High-calorie foods like mixed seed, Nyjer seed and peanuts, as well as food scraps, and shredded mild cheese, rice and pasta, bacon and potatoes cooked without salt are ideal for birds, and provide energy in the months of winter.
A water supply is essential for bathing and preening.
Birds need to keep their feathers in top condition to ensure that effectively isolate and immersion in a clean bird bath will ensure no debris or dirt prevents. Arrange your garden too. Some cheap garden plants can be a real investment for wildlife and the appearance of your outdoor space.
A simple climber such as honeysuckle, or shrubs rich in fruits such as ash and hawthorn are provided food and shelter.
RSPB spokesman Andy Waters said: “You need not spend much time and money to provide a slap-up food for garden birds – in fact, providing tasty and beneficial could not be easier.
“A mix of seeds, some leftover food scraps and a little water is our equivalent to a three-course meal and a life line when the seasons change and food is scarce.”
