Haddonstone recommend positioning your bird table in your garden where a bird can easily see a predator such as a cat and also near to trees where a bird can survey the area before landing to feed from the bird table. Placing bird feed on a bird table year round causes no harm to birds as long as hard foods are avoided. The RSPB say feeding sunflower seeds is not likely to be harmful to young.
Don't forget birds need fresh water,so a bird bath is the perfect accompaniment to your bird table. Order yours today!
