Uk People Help Birds Get through Worst Winter For Decades

The UK is not only in the grip of a reccession it is suffering it's worst winter for decades.
While some might only think and worry about their own problems, there are many kind hearted people buying food and distributing it around their gardens to keep the bird population fed.
Richard James, RSPB wildlife advisor, says: 'Lots of us can’t get to work today, so if you are at home, spending a few minutes clearing up bird tables or putting out food could mean the difference between life and death for some of our garden birds.'
Birds are unable to penetrate the ground to find worms and insects with thick snow cover, and berry-bearing shrubs and other natural food sources are practically invisible.
Food on bird tables and in feeders is a real lifeline in these kind of conditions and can literally keep them alive.
The RSPB speaks out for birds and wildlife, tackling the problems that threaten our environment. They rely upon memberships and donations to fund their work. you can find more about them at
I can not imagine walking into my garden without hearing or seeing the different varieties of birds all around, so it is nice to see that so many people take the trouble and expense to look after the birds, helping them survive the winter.
For these caring people just seeing the birds and hearing their songs repays them with interest for their efforts.
