Winter can be a difficult time for UK birds, especially in severe weather. You can help by providing a regular supply of food and clean fresh water. If possible it is best to feed in the morning and in the early afternoon before it get dark
Foods to leave out include:
- High calorie seed mixes
- Black sunflower seeds
- Nyjer seeds
- Peanuts (unsalted)
- Net free fat balls (netting can trap birds feet and may cause injury)
- Kitchen scraps such; mild grated cheese, cooked potatoes, cooked rice, pastry and soaked fruit.
