When it comes to wild creatures we are probably most familiar with, birds are usually top of the list, in both gardens and the wider countryside. Whether a humble robin following you through the garden border, a starling chattering from the rooftop, or the scarce and beautiful waxwing, feasting on scarlet rowan berries in midwinter, we can't help but love the birds we share our lives with.
Many people already do their bit in the garden to help birds, by hanging up a feeder or providing a shallow dish of water for drinking and bathing, but there are many ways to encourage a large array of bird species to not only feed and drink in the garden, but to raise young too.
At Wild Horizons we are experienced in creating habitat for birds, far beyond the bird table. We specialise in many different areas, including the design, construction and installation of nesting boxes from blue tits and robins right through to more challenging species such as treecreeper and marsh tit, including birds of prey too.
We are also experienced in developing areas of scrub. Planting native trees and shrubs not only provides nesting sites for species that require dense undisturbed habitats for protection from predators, but also attracts warbler species such as blackcap, whitethroat and lesser whitethroat, who visit to feed on berries.
With careful planning and aftercare, we can help you to create your dream space for birds, in a small back garden or hectares of open grassland.
If you have any questions or want to discuss your site's potential and local wildlife's needs, get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.
