The life of wild birds can be pretty tough at times, especially in the winter. Food sources are scarce and the cold can be too much for some of the younger birds to cope with. If they should happen to find food left for them in a nearby garden or park they will usually return there regularly.
Leaving food in your garden will therefore entice a variety of birds into visiting you, which can really bring your garden to life. For a show complete with aerial aqua aerobics you might consider adding a solar fountain, as birds clearly really enjoy playing with water and will use it as a bird bath.
Solar fountains do not have to be connected up to your mains. This means that you can place them anywhere in your garden, so long as the area chosen receives an abundance of sunlight.
As they are powered directly from the sun, there are no ongoing electric charges to worry about and maintaining them made a great deal more straightforward.
