As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, all anybody wants to do is stay inside in the warmth, but do we think about the wildlife at this time of year? How do they cope in these cold situations and how can we help? Living in the countryside between a river and open fields, we do get quite a lot of furry – and spiky – friends visiting! All four of us love to quietly watch them go about their business.
Garden specialists, Oeco Garden Rooms, are promoting awareness and sharing some handy tips on how to help and attract the wildlife in your garden this winter. These tips will allow you to give the wildlife in your garden exactly what they need with regards to food, shelter, and warmth.
By following the tips on the infographic below, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re helping out wildlife such as hedgehogs, birds, insects, frogs and toads; keeping them happy and healthy over the winter period. These animals play an important part in our ecosystem, so we need to give them a helping hand when the cold weather takes over.
Help the wildlife in your garden this winter
We already regularly feed the birds that visit us, but I will definitely be helping some of the other wildlife this winter with this guide.
Do you get much wildlife visiting where you live?
