Do you feed or care for your garden wildlife?

Do you save food leftovers for garden wildlife, or perhaps compost it, or a bit of both?

Do you plant particular plants to attract garden wildlife?

What birds and creatures are attracted to your garden?

We have a bird feeding station at the bottom of the garden. We buy them seed in the summer, suet/fat balls in the winter, and mealworms all year round, and they also get scraps. They also have a bird bath. We do the annual RSPB bird survey and we do get quite a few types - finches, tits, sparrows, magpies, blackbirds, robins, pigeons, and also a crow. We also have a squirrel visitor who eats off the table too, and some years we get hedgehogs - last time was last year.

We don't deliberately plant things to attract certain types of wildlife but we do plant a lot of wildflowers, herbs, and foliage which maybe partly accounts for the variety of wildlife that visits our garden.
