Attracting Squirrels to my UK Garden.

Attracting squirrels to your garden in the UK is fairly easy as they are commonly found in many parts of the country. Here are some tips to attract squirrels to your garden:

  1. Provide food: Squirrels love nuts, seeds, and fruit. You can offer these foods by putting out a squirrel feeder or scattering them on the ground in a location where squirrels are likely to visit.

  2. Provide water: Squirrels need water just like any other animal, so consider adding a birdbath or shallow dish of water in a location where squirrels are likely to visit.

  3. Create a shelter: Squirrels need a place to rest and hide from predators. Consider adding a squirrel nesting box or providing a hollow log or tree stump for them to use as shelter.

  4. Plant trees: Squirrels love to climb trees, so consider planting trees that produce nuts or fruit, such as oak, hickory, or apple trees.

  5. Provide a safe environment: Squirrels are wary of predators, so make sure your garden provides a safe environment for them to visit. Keep pets indoors or on a leash, and avoid using pesticides or other chemicals that could harm them.

By following these tips, you can help to attract squirrels to your garden and create a welcoming habitat for them. It's important to remember that squirrels are wild animals and should be treated with respect and caution.
