During the Summer months birds are often in search of food for their young. As you can imagine this is a tiring job, below are some foods that can help our feathered friends: –
Black sunflower seeds, pinhead oatmeal, soaked sultanas, raisins and currants, mealworms, waxworms, good seed mixtures without loose peanuts,
RSPB food bars and summer seed mixture are all good foods to provide. Soft apples and pears cut in half, bananas and grapes are also good.
Some people use soaked dog or cat food and tinned pet foods, but have in mind these may attract magpies, crows and cats. –
peanuts and bread should be avoided at this time of year, as it can harmful if adult birds feed them to their nestlings
Food shortage can occur at almost any time, but during breeding season why not add some extra food to your bird table? It can make all the difference.
Other Tips: –
Water is important at this time of year, make sure there is water available as it can be hard for birds to find during the hot summer months.
Try not to cut the grass too short – longer grass and flowers attracts insects which birds eat
Have something in flower – Sedums, Bluebells & Allium are but a few you can plant
Avoid using weed killers and artificial fertiliser
Water is important at this time of year– Try placing containers of water, to help during the hotter summer days
Try piling up some logs, sticks & leaves in a corner of the garden, which will help attract insects for birds.
