Provide shelter - Birds need shelter from the cold in the winter months, not only can you do this by providing birdhouses you can also grow shrubs, conifers and trees.
Natural & Supplementary foods - Supplementary bird food can be very good at attracting birds to your garden including fat balls, bird mixes all topped up in feeders. But, why not try natural food too. By growing berries and leaving seeds scattered around.
Water - Birds love a supply of freshwater to drinks and bathe in. Fill your birdbath and watch as they flock to your garden. Remember check that your bird bath does not freeze over in winter!
