Welcome to the Bird Watching page.

Birdwatching is a brilliant learning activity to do at home. Here are some ideas about helping birds in your garden:-

  • Place varying types of bird feeders with different food around the garden to attract as many different bird species as you can.
  • Make sure your feeding station is easily visible from your favourite window so that you can fully enjoy watching the birds.
  • Attach stickers to the outside of your window to reduce the chance of birds flying into them.
  • Choose and grow native varieties of plants in your garden, because they tend to be better for insects.
  • Don’t be in a rush to tidy up the garden after your plants have stopped flowering. Seed heads are valuable sources of food in themselves, and good refuges for mini-beasts.
  • Always make sure clean, fresh water is available at ground level for birds and visiting mammals to drink and bathe in.
  • Put up a range of nestboxes so you don’t have all one type. Birds are territorial and won’t tolerate others of the same species nesting too close.
  • Make your own bee houses and bug hotels to keep your garden insect-friendly, which helps to support the food chain!
