One of the UK’s most popular summer visitors is the Swallow. They arrive here in April and by early June most Swallows have started to breed.
The Swallow (Hirundo rustica) is part of the group of passerine birds in the family Hirundinidae which are characterised by their adaptation to aerial feeding.
Try placing food in tree crevices to encourage natural feeding behaviour as shown in this video.
The results are in and our figures show that 98% of customers who completed our survey currently have a bird bath in their garden.
The Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe) is a small passerine bird previously considered to be part of the thrush family (Turdidae); however, they are more commonly thought of as members of the flycatcher family, (Muscicapidae).
We all know the pleasures of feeding our local wildlife at home.
