Lockdown Garden Birdwatch


Become a Lockdown Garden Birdwatch Champ!

Are you keen on bird watching? If so, I would love you to share your patch, your feeders and your birds with me! I am sharing your pics and stories on this section of my website,  showcasing what YOU are doing for birds in your patch! 

Whether you are a seasoned bird watcher, or just starting out, I would love to hear from you!


I am particularly keen on getting young people involved and will be sending out Birdwatch Champ certificates to any young person who takes part... there may even be some prizes for the best entries! A perfect school or home learning task! 

All you need to do is to send me some information and some photos about how you are helping the birds in your local patch. It could be your garden, on a window feeder, in your school or local space. If you have some videos, that would be brill too! You can present  it in any way you wish! Just  email your information to me or send your  text, images and videos via WeTransfer. You can also share via my AlfrescoWild FB group... whichever method works best for you!

This evening I refilled the bird feeders. The first feeder I refilled was the green tube, I later found that it was clogged! I put sunflower seeds in it. Then I refilled the feeder that’s hardest to reach; the Birdsy feeder with mealworms! I put some mixed seed and peanuts on the bird table. Those are for the Wood Pigeons and Squirrels. If I don’t put these seeds and nuts out the pigeons and the squirrels will eat the food from the other feeders, making other birds go hungry. Finally I sprinkle mixed seed all over the top half of the garden (I don’t want the Robins, Blackbirds and Dunnocks going hungry do I)?


You might have heard me mention a Birdsy feeder in the first paragraph it’s actually a camera! The Birdsy camera is a good way to shoot videos of birds whether it’s them flying or feeding it’s an amazing way to video these amazing creatures!


This paragraph is about maintaining feeders. To attract more birds you need to maintain feeders because if you don’t maintain your feeders the birds in your area may starve especially in the winter months. Cleaning your 

feeders also reduces diseases. In the first paragraph I mentioned a clogged feeder if I didn’t do anything about it, it would mean there was one feeder not working. At the bottom of the feeder there was some soggy seeds. So when you look at it, it looks full but nothing can come out!

We soaked the feeder in warm soapy water, removed the blockage and left it to dry over night before re filling the next morning.
