The 10 Best garden wildlife kits

From hedgehog houses to full feeding station kits, give your garden wildlife the treat they deserve
  • @SAMuston

1. Bird feeder

£40, johnlewis.com

A hipster home demands a hipster bird feeder – and they certainly don't come much cooler than this number by Eva Solo.

2. Hanging bird table

£85, notonthehighstreet.com

Frankly massive and possibly the poshest bird feeder around. No covered sides, though, so all those nuts can get blown around.

3. Traditional bird table

£9.99, robertdyas.co.uk

No trees? No problem, as this table comes with its own supporting structure. It is also remarkably cheap given its pine construction.

4. Bird nesting box

£6, magpieliving.co.uk

A little nest, for little birds to brave the winter in. Made of a twisted rattan that allows for ventilation, but nicely stays the wind.

5. Hedgehog house

£44.95, wildforms.co.uk

Featured on BBC Autumnwatch, it's the perfect sheltered feeding area. The door is predator-proof, so only hedgehogs, etc can get in.

6. Mounted squirrel feeder

£17.99, www.wilko.com

Why shouldn't squirrels have a place to call their own? This is specifically made with the little grey- and red-tails in mind.

7. Window feeder

£11.50, keengardener.co.uk

You may live in a block of flats but that doesn't mean you can't do your bit for winter-chilled wildlife. Attaches to your window.

8. Feeding station kit

£21.90, amazon.co.uk

This is positively bacchanalian, with feeders for seeds, peanuts, fat snacks and even suet. Caters for all sorts of little creatures.

9. Dovecote

£155, notonthehighstreet.com

Rather palatial, but it should be, given its cost. Pine construction has eight sides and four doors.

10. Squirrel feeder

£37.71, overstock.com

Don't waste your time trying to keep squirrels out of your bird feeder: give them their own house instead. This one splits into two.
