Feeding birds

Attracting garden birds

To attract birds to your garden, you need to provide the right type of food.

Take a look at our handy guide to the favoured food of some of our most common garden birds below.

Providing birds with a helping hand will bring them closer and reveal their fascinating behaviour and wonderful colours. 

Feeding birds is also an ideal way to inspire children to connect with nature.

It is important to remember to keep feeders, bird tables and bird baths clean to keep the birds that use them, fit, healthy and disease free.
