How to look after garden birds during the winter time

How to look after garden birds during the winter time

Please spare a thought for garden birds during the cold spells by giving them a bit more to eat.

During winter, freezing temperatures, snow and ice can prove difficult for birds to find enough food.

"Freezing weather is a potential death sentence for many birds," said Erica Howe from RSPB Eastern England. People are being encouraged to leave out high-energy foods such as fatballs, dried fruit, cheese and unsalted nuts.

"They're a little bit vulnerable and slightly open to infection… they need to have their energy levels kept up," said Erica.

However, it is important that you put out the right food for a energy-filled diet that also suits the garden birds' digestive systems.

"A lot of people over Christmas give birds the remains of their turkey fat and that's a big no no! It's very bad for our garden birds," said Erica. Stale bread is also not the most nutritious of foods to feed birds. "You should use anything that contains a little bit more energy and saturated fat content. If you put out the crumbs of your leftover Christmas cake and mince pies that will help."

During winter, natural food is often covered in snow and ice and impossible to salvage. Water birds can also be forced to leave iced-over lakes and rivers and they regularly seek refuge in our gardens. "Insects become harder to find and seeds and berries can be locked away by snow and frost," said Erica.

Water is also vital for birds to drink and bathe in. Bird baths can be kept from freezing over using small floating items like twigs or table tennis balls - antifreeze products should never be used. Recommended food for your garden birds include meal worms, soft fruit, seeds and grain, porridge oats, unsalted bacon, cooked rice, pasta, the insides of cooked potatoes and pastry.

For more information on how to look after your garden birds during winter and what species you can spot visit the RSPB website.
