How can you help wildlife in the Winter?

Due to the cold weather food is very scarce for wildlife. Below are ways in which you can help-
- Bird food: please make sure that you don't use fat balls in netting or spring like feeders as birds can get caught in them. 
- Fresh water: As water freezes so much in winter, it would be really helpful if you put some water out for them. It is a good idea to have water available in different size dishes and at different heights so it will help both birds and foxes along with a lot of other animals.
- Bird boxes: There are so many different types around. Having a range of sizes would be really helpful! 
- Shelters: To save money there are some great tutorials to help you make them with things that you can find around you house and are really effective.
- Bug hotels: Allows them borrow and is a food source for birds and other animals. Again, if you don't want to buy one, there are lots of ways in which you can make your own. 
- Cat/Dog food, left over food: Around this time fox cubs are born. By leaving food out you are helping the parents find food to keep strong and healthy so they can care for the cubs. 
PLEASE DON'T GIVE ANY ANIMAL COOKED BONES. 
They can splinter once eaten and can cause a huge amount of internal damage. However, raw bones are fine.
- Keep and eye out: If you even suspect that an animal might need help, please contact us, your local vet or local rescue for advice. 

If you would like any further information please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to help!
