Help our feathered friends plea

WITH icy temperatures set to hit the UK this month most people will be making plans to ensure their friends, family and pets are safe and warm.

There is one group however, that experts are concerned about – wild birds.

Last winter, Pets at Home found that 59 per cent of Britain’s wild birds were rarely or never fed during winter. And of the few people that remembered to feed birds, most were leaving the wrong foods out for them.

The firm is now urging more people to remember to feed the birds.

Joy Walker, store manager at Kendal, said: “Wild birds are vulnerable at this time of the year because the majority of people forget to put food out for them.

“There are plenty of foods that wild birds can eat – anything from black sunflower seeds to something as simple as peanuts contains the right kind of nutrients.”
