Nesting Birds

The nesting season is here and nesting birds are busy building nests, sitting on the clutch of eggs  and then feeding the young.

Adult birds seach for high energy food to feed their fledglings.  So when you feed your birds you will be helping them keep up their energy. 

It’s the time of year when you see more activity in the garden.  This is why it’s a good idea to make sure your feeders and tables are well stocked up.

The breeding in this country runs from about the start of March to the end of August but there are some birds that breed outside these months.

The breeding season may vary from year to year depending on factors such as climate and food.

Below is a photo I took last year of two fledglings sitting on the fence.  They will have had families of their own now!

Let’s all put some food and water out for the British Birds!
