Do you look around your garden in winter and wonder what there is for the native animals to feed on? Many people feel the need to give birds a helping hand by providing seed. In many ways it is better to plant a wide range of native plants to fulfill the needs of the local fauna throughout the year. Providing a clean water source is probably better than putting out a seed tray.
If you do want to attract bird int to garden with food, then make it an occasional treat and make sure the food suits a range of species. If you decide to add some more plants then you may like to go to this flower show.
