Bring the nation's favourite bird into your garden. The familiar colourful red breast of the Robin will help to brighten up your garden. With a mix containing mealworms, the Robin's favourite food, you are sure to see one in your garden. With food resources scarcer now, it is essential to feed garden birds all year round.
Once you have started to feed the birds it is important to continue this and develop a routine, as the birds will become reliant upon your help. Put out feed at the beginning of the day to ensure that the birds can replace the energy that they have lost over night. It is best to have multiple feeding sites within the garden to prevent overcrowding. Moving them around regularly will prevent a build up of droppings, which can spread disease and bacteria.
