RSPB call to feed birds this winter

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) is poised to launch a campaign to persuade more people to feed birds this winter.

The charity is asking bird-lovers to fill a feeder on Feed the Birds Day, which takes place on 30 October.

It is set to target family, gardening, lifestyle, wildlife, women’s and youth magazines with information about how members of the public can actively take part in the day.

Research showing that about three million feeders are left empty daily will be used as a news hook for the campaign.

Tips from Alan Titchmarsh and Ainsley Harriot on how to attract birds and make bird cake will also be used to generate publicity.
