However, with our gardens, we can make it much easier for them, and increase their chances of survival. And, here are top tips on helping birds survive this winter.
When winter comes, bird baths always freeze over, which means that you will have to clear it (probably) everyday. A good way to do this is to pore warm water over the ice. However, sometimes the ice doesn't go that deep, and you can slide the top of the ice off the bird bath - it really depends on how cold the weather is.
5. Make sure, food/water/feeders/and shelter...
Make sure that the food, water, feeders, and shelter that you put in your garden for birds, are out of the way of predators, such as cats. Make sure that it is in a safe and secure place. For example, the RSPB does brilliant bird pole feeders, were they are metal, to stop your cat, or other cats, trying to climb up to the birds!
