How to attract birds into your garden

There is something very peaceful about sitting in your garden or living room and watching birds flying around. You may want to attract more birds or other animals in to your garden but are not sure exactly how to go about it. If you have a cat or a dog which is good at catching animals then you may want to think carefully before trying to attract them. Most birds are quite used to having to contend with other animals but if you encourage them to nest then you may have baby birds around who are not quite as good at getting away!

Firstly, a bird table is a great addition and the first step in welcoming in wildlife. There are a number of different types of bird tables you can opt for or if you don’t have room for a table then you may instead choose to hang bird feeders from the branches of a tree or from your fence.

A bird bath is another item that can look beautiful in your garden but also gives birds another reason to come back. If you do opt for a bird table, be sure to try and top up / change the water often.
