Conservationists have urged West Country wildlife lovers to fully stock their feeders to help birds through the winter.
With temperatures dipping below zero at night and in single figures during the day, the RSPB has encouraged people to provide high energy foods and water to aid resident populations.
Tony Whitehead, from the RSPB in the South West, said: "The drop in temperatures across the UK will have been a big shock to birds' systems after spending the past couple of months with few worries in terms of food availability. Up to now natural food sources have been readily available and water has been easy to come by. Now, as temperatures are falling, birds will need all the help they can get to survive the winter."
