At this time of year, it is best to put food and water out on a regular basis. When it gets colder feed twice a day if you can, preferably early morning and early afternoon, high-energy (high-fat) foods like fat balls are great for birds to maintain their fat reserves to survive the frosty nights.
It’s best to judge what quantity to feed by the demand for food, it is not advisable to allow uneaten food to build around feeders. Birds to you garden will become used to when you feed so try not to change this as they will develop a routine as to when to visit your garden.
