Nearly every animal has a home of some type.  Birds are no different, so help your feathery friends keep safe and also a bit warmer in the winter months with one of our stylish bird houses. 



These stylish feeding stations are perfect because they enable you to provide a wide variety of feeds and water to attract different birds. Providing a variety of the right foods for wild-birds is especially important in the winter months.  Above all because it will help them to survive the coldest nights and stay healthy, but also because it will attract the widest possible variety of wild bird visitors into your garden.



Birds need high energy foods such as fats and peanuts in cold weather but they also need a constant supply of fresh water for drinking  and bathing, which can be difficult to find in prolonged periods of frosty weather. You can hang feeders containing seeds and mealworms from the hooks, mesh peanut feeders which are designed to to prevent choking, fat balls and water drinkers that will provide a constant supply of fresh water.

It’s important to keep the feeding station clean and remove uneaten food regularly to prevent disease. Move the feeding stations around the garden occasionally to prevent build-up of mess and disease on the ground below where other birds may feed. For the best results, put food out at the same time each day, the birds will soon learn to time their visits.
