Back Yard Birds

In the aftermath of March 2018’s Snowmageddon the back garden birds were all looking for a good meal to refuel.

Despite it being spring putting out extra food, keeping bird tables clean of snow and regularly changing water supplies are all essential for many garden birds’ survival during snowy weather.

Unlike mammals, who can store fat for extreme conditions, birds have to eat enough every day to make it through a cold night.

At daybreak, birds’ energy levels will be at their lowest and they immediately have to start filling up again to survive.
