Feed the Birds Day Proves Popular
Feed the Birds Day — the annual event to support British garden birds — took place at the weekend.
Once again the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds organised its national Feed the Birds Day and the society urged people to think about the different ways they can help wildlife in their gardens.
Feed the Birds Day was on Saturday, October 25, and as part of its annual effort the charity invited people to sign-up to its Homes for Wildlife project. Since launching a year ago, more than 65,000 people have signed-up to and supported the project, by following wildlife-gardening advice, helping them transform their homes and gardens into wildlife havens.
According to RSPB research, more than half of us regularly put out bread, peanuts and seeds for birds. These foods are of course helpful and welcome but there are other simple activities they say we can all do that will really benefit the birds.
