  • The late arrival of spring and the lack of crumbs left by humans means the birds have found it more difficult than usual to find food

Estepona town hall has put up bird feeders around the town to ensure that the area's blackbirds, sparrows and finches in particular don't die of starvation during the lockdown.

With the late arrival of spring and the insects they rely on, paired with the fall in waste food left around by humans, these birds have been struggling.

These feeders, placed in trees so rodents can't get to them, are being filled with birdseed and millet.
