Look after your garden birds and they'll help you look after your garden During summer the hedgehogs also like to visit and finish any food left behind by the birds. Click here for more about hedgehogs You can buy coconut shells ready filled with fat and if these are placed in a suitable position they will be much appreciated by the birds that can’t clink on feeders but be warned they won’t last very long Sometimes we used the empty shells as containers in which to place other food such as the female blackbird on the left. Mealworm can also be served in the type of wire baskets often used for peanuts It’s inevitable that where there are lots of small birds that the larger birds of prey will arrive looking for a meal. There is more about the sparrowhawks that have visited us here. I’ve linked to pages on the RSPB website for most of the items we use in our garden but you can buy bird feeders and food from many other places too.
