Back to garden birds, successful breeding and fledging means that there are more beaks to feed, and you might be host to young families of birds. Indeed, this applies to both resident and migrant bird species, so whether you are visited by Robins, Song Thrushes, Blackcaps or Spotted Flycatchers, a good supply of food in your garden is always essential. Let us know in the comments below which birds are visiting your gardens – and remember, your photos are also welcome!
It’s worth keeping in mind that warm temperatures mean that lawns and flower beds can dry out, which creates difficulty for Thrushes and Dunnocks who hunt for worms and invertebrates. You can help avoid problems like this by feeding Mealworms on the ground, in your seed mix, or from a ground feeder.
Enjoy the rest of the spring season, and all the beautiful sights and sounds which it brings!
