If you have a garden or even a small outdoor area, you might like to try:
- Letting a section or all of your lawn grow long and maybe seeding wildflowers. This can create an important habitat for all sorts of insects and minibeasts, which then provide food for birds
- Growing flowering plants and shrubs that give nectar-rich food to butterflies and bees, as well as seeds, berries and cover for birds and small mammals
- Providing trees, climbing plants and hedges to create roosting and nesting sites for birds and mammals, as well as valuable shelter
- Adding a pond or water feature – these can be a habitat for a huge variety of animal life, from amphibians and invertebrates to bathing garden birds
- Not being too tidy! Woodpiles, compost and trimmings can be incredible places for animals to live, feed and hibernate.
