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...||Did you know?|
|Goldcrests, Treecreepers, Bullfinches and other normally difficult to see birds can be seen more easily among the bare trees. Also keep your eyes open for Redwings, Fieldfares and Waxwings, which have flown from Iceland and Scandinavia, among berry laden trees.||Small birds, like Wrens and Long-tailed Tits, need to eat 30 to 40% of their body weight daily to survive the short, cold winter days. In mid-winter, this means they may have less than 8 hours of day light to find enough food to survive the long cold nights. More>>|

|A murmuration (flock) of Starlings can number thousands and even millions of birds and they perform spectacular aerial displays as they return to their roosts in the evening. Places like Somerset Levels and Gretna Green are well-known but there are others. Have you ever seen one of these spellbinding spectacles? Vote now!||
Happy Advent! Have a
look inside and discover something about your garden birds.
Don't forget to provide food and water for the birds during the festive season.
