Winter is a crucial time to take part in wildlife jobs around the garden. These can include simple errands such as ensuring your bird feeders are nicely topped up for your little visitors and cleaning out the ever important bird bath (ensuring to regularly unfreeze it), to placing nest boxes in suitable locations. For the even smaller visitors such as bees, planning your planting to include flowers from February through to November and planting in clumps, can be vital for our important pollinators.
Other, larger jobs, can include setting ponds (even the smallest pond will attract dragonflies, damselflies, frogs, newts and toads!), creating a compost heap, and setting logs down.
