The Trust is calling for members of the public to remember wildlife as the autumnal weather begins to take hold.
Many birds migrate during this time of year, such as the 60,000 pink-footed geese that descend on Montrose Basin and can be seen at the People’s Postcode Lottery Goose Breakfast on Sunday 19 October.
However, there are a lot of species (such as robins) that stay put during the winter, and these species can always do with a bit of assistance to survive during the harsh winter months. Keeping a constant supply of food in your garden is one of the easiest ways to help.
Speciality foods like Vine House Farm’s suet balls give birds an immediate and important source of high-energy wild bird foods, essential for survival particularly over the winter months. What's more, if you purchase your bird food from Vine House Farm, the company will donate a percentage of the profits directly to the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
