The best way to attract birds to your garden is to leave out suitable food in a safe place, along with a source of clean water. But do you know what to feed birds in winter? Take a look at Peach Perfect's easy to follow guide to birdfeeding (above) to see how you can help.

Also remember it's important to keep food (especially dried fruit) out of the reach of pets, and leaving food lying around can also attract rats. Make sure you clean any bird feeders regularly, removing food that hasn't been eaten or is about to go mouldy. And some food, such as whole peanuts, is more safely dispensed in a special mesh feeder.
