It's a well-known fact that attracting birds and other animals can bring a wealth of benefits to your outside space. For example, the presence of birds ensures pest numbers stay at a minimum whilst helping to conserve the environment- two crucial factors for a thriving outside space. Furthermore, birds can boost flower pollination whilst effectively controlling weed growth, therefore helping to keep your garden look its very best.
Autumn/Winter is a particularly good time of year to attract birds, as Winter is the most challenging season for wildlife to survive, primarily due to the lack of food. Best of all, with lots of new and emerging bird box designs there's plenty to choose from in order to create a stunning outside focal point. Check out our four favourite designs below:
