KEEP IT GREEN

Bird Watching (UK) - - Garden Birds -

The rise of deck­ing in back gar­dens, and con­creted-over park­ing spots in front gar­dens, is thought to have hit many species hard. Put sim­ply, birds need veg­e­ta­tion to sur­vive, so if you do need to lose green­ery in one area, try to com­pen­sate else­where. For ex­am­ple, you could keep plenty of planters and pot plants on any deck­ing. Bet­ter still, keep some ar­eas as nat­u­ral as pos­si­ble. This will not only en­sure you hve an in­ter­est­ing gar­den but it will help at­tract a wide va­ri­ety of birds for all the fam­ily to en­joy! Clean feed­ers mean healthy Green­finches!

Healthy Green­finches vist­ing clean feed­ers Green­finches, for ex­am­ple, suf­fered a pop­u­la­tion crash in re­cent years as a re­sult of tri­chomono­sis, a disease trans­mit­ted through bird feed­ers CLEAN FEED­ERS
