Water, Water Everywhere - but not a drop to drink
I know it seems like there is a lot of water around in this weather - but a lot of it is frozen.
We have done loads over the last few years to encourage the birds back to Leabank Square. The bird boxes, hedges, berries, seed-balls, etc have all worked. But please put some shallow bird baths out for them in these frozen temperatures as well.
They are struggling to find water to drink because their normal ponds & puddles are frozen over. So please put out a shallow plate, or upturned lid, or bowl of water - out of reach of the cats of course - for them to get a drink.
