Trees for Birds: Tui’s are singing brightly in the trees here at our North Road site despite the very winterish sub-zero temperatures in the south the past 2 weeks. This Tui was captured in trees nearby making a meal of some Cotoneaster berries.
Ilex – Smooth leaf Holly are a great alternative and good source of winter food for these birds, particularly the Ilex Golden King, Hendersonii, JC van Tol & Handsworth New Silver with their bright red winter berries.
Also the Arbutus – Irish Strawberry Tree & Sorbus aria – Whitebeam are fantastic winter food providers for the birds.
