Having a pond or water garden or living near a lake or natural pond means that birds will become a part of your environment. Birds love to splash, feed and bathe in ponds and the hot summer days provide cool fresh water for them to drink. Any pond lover will most certainly be a bird lover and feeding and watching and documenting the birds will provide much enjoyment and a real connection with the beauty of nature and her awesome power!
Birds love to bathe in garden ponds and drink from waterfalls and streams. One of the main attractions of having a water feature or pond in your property is to attract birds. Hanging feeders and providing clean water is a sure way to entice a variety of birds to your oasis. The top birds in the UK are currently: Robin, Collared dove, Great tit, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Woodpigeon, Blackbird, Starling, Blue tit and the House sparrow. Whatever your favorite feathered friend, they will bring you joy and watching them is such a glorious hobby.
