Providing food, water, perches and shelter will help your local bird population to survive this winter

Thrush among the crab apples. Crab apple trees are brilliant for wildlife all year round.

Sunflower seeds are the most popular feed in our garden, tempting a wide range of species (here goldfinch and chaffinch)

There are always wood pigeons in the tree tops stopping by for softening fruit

Don’t forget to supply water too. Here a fieldfare is enjoying bubbling water from the rock fountain.

And … finishing with an extra picture of a long-tailed tit (because I like them so much)

    Wonderful shots!! I enjoy seeing your birds, so different from ours. I don’t blame you for your affection for the long-tailed tits, they sure are cute!

    Lovely shots of these birds, many of which are faves (particularly the robin.)

    As usual, gorgeous bird shots. I don’t know how you do it, do you train them to sit still and look appealing?
