British Garden Birds is dedicated to helping garden birdwatchers to identify and enjoy the birds that visit their gardens, and to understand the birds' lives and behaviour.

This Month...

Several species of winter visitors may be found in the UK in November. For example, Redwing and Fieldfare are thrushes that feed on berries, Brambling may be among flocks of Chaffinches feeding on beech mast, and the gorgeous Waxwing may be searching for rowan berries.

Did you know...

During the winter, Wrens and Long-tailed Tits often snuggle together on a branch or in a hole at night time to keep warm. Some other birds, like Starlings, Jackdaws and other crows, and gulls often roost together and then disperse during the day to feed. Find out more. 

Things to do...

Clean your bird baths and bird feeders regularly using a mild disinfectant, rinsing thoroughly afterwards. Wear gloves when cleaning feeders and bird tables. Do not take bird baths, tables or feeders into the house. Wash your hands thoroughly when finished. Find out more.
