A bird table is a valuable addition to any garden. They offer a stunning solution to feeding your garden birds and we've made sure we've sourced the best quality bird tables for you to purchase and use. Bird tables provide a great view of the visitors to your garden too. Bird tables are free standing, so you don't have to worry about them blowing in the wind if hanging off a tree branch, or purchasing an additional feeding station.
A bird table is best placed in a safe place away from ledges where cats may be able to climb onto them. Birds want to feel safe as they tuck in! If you want to admire the feathered friends that visit your garden, place your bird table in view of your back windows.

Bird Table Materials
Bird tables are traditionally made out of wood. If you're looking for something natural, a wooden bird table is a great choice. However bird tables can also be made out of metal and even plastic. Although these are not as natural looking, they are easier to maintain and clean, so are a great choice if you're looking for a more low-maintenance bird table.
How Do I Clean My Bird Table?
It is important to make sure your bird table is clean and free from bacteria and fungus, as these can cause wild birds to develop infections. You can clean your bird table using a brush and a bucket of weak solution bleach. Once you have scrubbed it with the solution make sure all the bleach residue has been removed by giving it a good rinse. It is also a good idea to move your bird table to a different place in you garden a couple of times a year, to prevent a build up of disease in one area.
