For warm-blooded animals, a lot of energy is burned by just keeping our body temperature where it should be; even when we are asleep we are still burning energy.
Water holds a fascination for kids – there’s no doubt about that. Now the summer holidays are here, it’s a perfect time to go out and explore your local pond.
Back in February this year we decided to launch a junior bird watch, trying to encourage school children to take part in feeding their local birds and identifying which species of birds prefer different food.
Trees and hedges in gardens are wonderful for wildlife and have been providing food and shelter for birds, bats and bees for hundreds of years. With planning, a lifeless garden – whatever its size - can soon become a refuge for wildlife and ultimately provide a safe place to breed and produce autumn’s natural flush of fruits and berries.
To many people it’s their favourite season - spring heralds the promise of new life with fresh sounds and colours after the darkness of winter. What better time to venture outdoors and explore?
That is the question. And this is the answer: Yes. Feed. Feed in winter, spring, autumn and yes summer. That’s the one that still seems to surprise some people. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is during the summer months that we should actually increase the amount of food we put out.
