An increasing number of us are starting to realise the benefits of attracting birds into our outdoor environment and are using various techniques to try and achieve this aim. To attract birds into your garden in larger numbers you’re going to have to make your garden bird friendly and one of the many tricks available to do so is to place bird tables in suitable locations throughout your garden.
Bird tables are perhaps the most popular way to get birds to visit your garden although you could try other methods such as planting specific trees which they like or setting aside a quite area in the garden where they can be left to go about their business. In addition, try cutting back or eliminating the use of pesticides in your garden, doing so will increase the number of insects in the area which will encourage birds to come to find a meal in your piece of land.
Bird tables offer shelter and food and once they get to know that the table is there you will find that many birds will return on a regular basis to use the sanctuary it provides. This is especially important during the Winter months when many birds would fail to survive if it wasn’t for the kindness of those who provide this essential service.
When you have managed to entice these wonderful feathered creatures into your garden you will find that they help with the control of unwanted bugs and insects and also will give an added dimension to your outdoor space. Who doesn’t appreciate the sound of birds signing in the garden on a fine summer’s day?
Bird tables are particularly popular with species of birds that prefer feeding from a roof, table or the ground such as robins, wrens, dunnocks and blackbirds. So look out for these species when you have your bird table installed in our garden, you are bound to see them making good use of the new feeding area once they find it.
