February Wildlife Guide

Posted on February 1, 2019

Your monthly guide on how to encourage wildlife into your garden all year round.

WILD BIRDS

Peak bird feeding month – natural food reserves have been depleted and garden birds are reliant on your feeders!
Winter migrant birds are still in Britain.

MAMMALS

Squirrels have their first litter of kits as early as February so mothers need additional food until they have weaned
ten weeks later.

BEES

Set up time for bumble bee/mammal nesters. First queen bumble bees flying and can be seen on early Willow, Hellebores, Crocus and Snowdrop.

INSECTS

Snowdrops appear and provide some pollen and nectar for early flying bees.
Prepare the ground for a wild-flower meadow.
Ladybirds huddle together in window reveals.
