10 different activities to help you embrace the winter season

If you’re an animal lover, a nature enthusiast, or you’re just looking for a way to relax and unwind, then you might want to consider doing a spot of birdwatching. Birds are everywhere if you really look for them – on top of houses, waddling along the pavements, nesting in trees and buses, and soaring through our skies, either alone or in groups. It’s easy to take them for granted, because they’re always there, but it’s amazing how, just by looking a little closer, we can unlock an entirely new world.

Winter is a great time to bird watch because there’s an influx of new birds, such as fieldfares and redwings, who migrate from colder regions like Russia and Scandinavia to the UK for winter. Across all species, birds will also be looking to keep warm by roosting and stocking up on food, and for many species, this will mean frequent trips to bird boxes, and bird feeders in people’s gardens. Plus, it’s also much easier to see bird activity during the winter when there are less leaves on the trees for them to be concealed by!

Whether you have any knowledge of different bird species or not, they’re still fascinating to watch. They fiercely protect their young – just as we humans do, and they also have squabbles, and daily routines when it comes to things like feeding and bathing. If you do decide to read up on any birds that you come across, then things will just get even more interesting, as you begin to understand the habits and life cycles of specific breeds and discover more about why they behave the way that they do.

If you’ve never tried birdwatching before, then you have a read of our introductory guide, which will show you how to get started.
