The Importance of Seasonal Bird Care 

As the seasons change, so do the needs of our feathered friends.

Understanding and adapting to these needs is crucial for the health and well-being of birds in our gardens. Seasonal bird care is not just an act of kindness; it's a vital practice for maintaining a balanced ecosystem in our backyards.

In winter, birds require extra calories to maintain their body heat, making high-energy foods and insulated shelters critical for survival. Spring brings nesting season, where providing nesting materials and safe spaces becomes paramount.

Summer heat necessitates access to water for cooling and hydration, while autumn is a time to prepare birds for the colder months ahead with nutrient-rich foods.
At Riverside Woodcraft, we recognise the essential role that gardeners and bird enthusiasts play in supporting wildlife throughout the year. Our range of bird care essentials is meticulously designed to meet the diverse needs of birds in every season.

Winter Bird Care Essentials 

Here's why Riverside Woodcraft's offerings are celebrated as some of the best bird feeders in the UK:

Quality Beyond Compare: As the cold of winter envelops the garden, the survival of our feathered visitors heavily relies on the warmth and nourishment we provide. Embrace the season by ensuring your garden has the essentials to keep birds warm, fed, and thriving even in the frostiest months.

Keeping Birds Warm and Fed 

Bird Shelters: Our bird shelters offer a cosy refuge for birds against the harsh winter elements. Crafted from durable materials, these shelters are built to withstand snow, rain, and cold winds, providing a warm haven for your garden birds.

High-Energy Bird Food: We offer a selection of high-energy bird foods to help birds maintain their body heat and energy levels during winter. Packed with fats, seeds, and nuts, these food options are crucial for bird survival when natural food sources are scarce.

Winter Bird Care Tips:

Regular Maintenance: Check and clean your bird feeders and shelters regularly to prevent the spread of diseases. Winter weather can dampen food and create mould, so keeping feeding areas dry and clean is essential.

Strategic Placement: Position shelters and feeders in a sheltered location to protect them from severe weather. Placing them near trees or shrubs can provide additional bird cover against the elements and predators.

Supplement Natural Food Sources: Continue to supply a variety of high-energy foods throughout the winter. Suet, sunflower seeds, and peanut butter are excellent choices that provide the calories birds need to stay warm.

Ensure Fresh Water Supply:  Staying hydrated is crucial for birds' health, especially in winter when natural sources may be frozen.

Unparalleled Designs for All: Our unusual bird feeders collection is bound to captivate with its unique designs. We have it all for those seeking specific solutions, whether it's a plastic window bird feeder station that serves multiple birds or bird feeders for small birds. 

Handcrafted Excellence: Riverside Woodcraft takes immense pride in its handcrafted approach. Every bird feeder and table in the UK we offer is shaped with hands familiar with tradition and techniques honed over the years. This ensures unparalleled durability and that each piece of our bird feeders functions optimally, offering sanctuary and sustenance to our feathered visitors.

Spring Bird Care Essentials

With the arrival of spring, gardens begin to buzz with life as birds start their annual routines of nesting and raising new life. Bird enthusiasts must ensure their gardens are ready to support these natural cycles. Here's how you can transform your outdoor space into a nurturing haven for birds during the spring.

Supporting Nesting and New Life

Nesting Boxes: Offer a safe and secure environment for birds to lay their eggs and raise their young with our range of nesting boxes. They're perfect for various bird species, designed to mimic natural nesting sites.

Early Spring Bird Food Varieties: As natural food sources may still be scarce, supplementing with early spring bird food ensures birds have the necessary nutrients for breeding and nesting. Our blends are designed to support their increased energy needs.

Create a Safe Water Source: Ensure your garden has shallow water sources for birds to drink and bathe, which is crucial for their health and hygiene. Bird baths should be kept clean and filled with fresh water.

Minimise Disturbances: During the nesting season, try to minimise garden maintenance activities that could disturb nesting birds, such as trimming hedges or large-scale landscaping projects.

Summer Bird Care Essentials 

Summer brings warmth and abundance to the garden but also introduces challenges for our feathered friends, such as high temperatures and scarce water sources. Ensuring birds have access to water and shade is crucial during these months. Here's how our summer bird care essentials selection can help keep your garden birds cool, hydrated, and healthy.

Hydration and Protection 

Bird Baths: A staple for any summer garden, our bird baths provide a reliable water source for birds to drink and bathe, helping them stay cool. Available in various designs, they also add beauty to your garden.

Shade-Providing Shelters: Provide a respite from the sun with our shade-providing shelters. These structures offer protection from the heat and serve as safe spots for birds to rest.

Summer Care Guidelines:

Regularly Refill and Clean Water Sources: Ensure bird baths and water misters are routinely filled with fresh, clean water to prevent the spread of diseases.

Position Bird Baths in Shaded Areas: To keep the water cooler for longer, place bird baths under the shade of a tree or near other garden structures.

Provide a Variety of Feeding Options: Summer is an excellent time to offer a variety of foods in your feeders, including fruits and jelly, to attract a broader range of bird species.

Monitor and Maintain Shelters: Check shelters periodically to ensure they remain in good condition, providing a safe and cool environment for birds.

Autumn Bird Care Essentials

Autumn is a crucial time for birds as they prepare for migration or gear up for the winter months. Providing the proper support can make a significant difference in their survival and health. Explore our essential bird care products to help garden visitors during this transitional season.

Preparing for Winter 

High-Fat Bird Food: Our selection of high-fat foods offers the extra calories birds need to build up their energy reserves. These foods, from suet balls to energy-rich seed mixes, are ideal for autumn feeding.

Bird Feeders: Ensure a steady food supply with our durable bird feeders, designed to withstand autumn weather and accommodate multiple birds at once, making your garden a preferred stop for migrating species.

Bird Houses for Winter Insulation: Provide a warm refuge with our insulated birdhouses. These shelters are essential for non-migratory birds seeking protection from the colder nights of autumn.
