A Bird Friendly Garden

It is quite simple to create a bird friendly garden with just a little time and effort. Many birds that used to be commonly seen in UK gardens such as house sparrows and blackbirds are decreasing in numbers so by making your garden a haven for birds you can help reverse that decline.

Things to think about are the types of plants you grow in your garden, providing food, water and shelter for birds, a place where they can nest and raise their young, and keeping predators out.

If you have children getting them involved with planning and making your garden bird friendly is a great way of introducing them to nature and teaching them to take care of the environment.

By turning your garden into a small-scale, bird friendly “nature reserve” you can really make a difference to local bird populations. And of course you will get the enjoyment of seeing more birds and different species in your garden.
