It is calling on us all to feed the birds in our gardens to help get them through the icy grip. Several red-list birds use our gardens as refuges in winter, including house sparrows, starlings and song thrushes.
The RSPB claims that the icy weather is also bringing further red-list birds to suburban gardens including redpolls, yellowhammers and tree sparrows.
Please, please get out there and put some food out for them. From apples, to seeds, nuts and fat balls, these rations will help the UK's bird population face off the biggest killer this millenium. For more information click here.
