This month... Did you know?
October sees Robins lay claim to their winter feeding territories. Coal tits return to many gardens where they grab food and then hide it somewhere for later. Large flocks of Starlings gather at dusk to roost through the night, and then disperse to suburbs during the day to feed. Winter thrushes, like Redwings, start to arrive. This is the best month to empty your nest boxes because birds have finished breeding and there are unlikely to be any wasps inside the nest boxes. After emptying, wash out with boiling water (taking care not to scald yourself) or mild disinfectant Remember, it is illegal to keep any eggs that you may find. More>>
Vote now! Things to do...
Vote Now! (Opens in new window)The winter thrushes, Redwings and Fieldfares, should be arriving this month, as well as Blackbirds, Song Thrushes and Mistle Thrushes. If you go outside at night-time, you may hear the peeping calls of Redwings as they migrate. Have you seen or heard any? Vote now! The RSPB Feed the Birds Day is on 25/26 October 2014 and is a good time to provide food, water and shelter for the birds. Each day, small birds, like Blue Tits, have to eat up to a third of their own body weight in food to survive and your help may make all the difference.
