Hard times for garden birds?

A recently published consumer questionnaire tackled the question of whether householders might be cutting back on feeding their birds this winter because of the pressure on household budgets. Interestingly, the study found that just one in ten people were cutting back because of the tougher economic conditions.

It seems that, as a nation of animal lovers, we are reluctant to reduce our efforts to help our feathered friends. This is good news for those birds that make use of the food we provide during the tough winter months.
