What we're looking for
Feeding birds and other wildlife in your garden is a popular activity - over half the UK's adults feed birds in their garden. That's a lot of extra help for the birds! Providing food will bring nature closer for you to enjoy. And it also rewards them for sharing their lives with you. Feeding birds is also an ideal way to enthuse children about wildlife. Supplementary feeding can't provide all the natural proteins and vitamins that adult and young birds need, so it's important to create and manage your garden to provide a source of natural foods as well, through well-managed lawns, shrubs and flowerbeds. If you provide both natural and supplementary food, your garden will be visited year-round by a host of different birds.
