Garden bird food
Feeding wild birds in your garden, on your window sills or in local parks can be very therapeutic. It’s the ideal way to appreciate the diverse range of species to be found in the UK. For children, putting out bird food in the garden can be fascinating and fun.
It’s also beneficial for keen gardeners! Having regular birds dropping in helps to keep insect levels down and can promote pollination. Your feathered visitors might even peck away at your weeds if you’re lucky!
There’s an even better reason to buy wild bird food though. Indigenous animals often struggle to find natural sources of nutrition, not least in heavily built-up areas. By feeding the birds in your garden, you are doing your bit for local conservation and to preserve the UK’s wonderful wildlife.
What to feed wild birds in winter
In colder months, if you are considering where to buy wild bird feed – and what type to buy – keep in mind that our feathered friends need fat-rich food to keep their energy levels up. These creatures can only survive on their own body fat for a limited time when the weather makes foraging even more of a challenge.
The RSPB also recommends that, in severe weather, you put wild bird food out twice a day – morning and afternoon.
Should you feed wild birds all year?
Feeding wild birds is not just about winter. Food shortages can occur all year round. Your wild bird food could make a big difference to the survival rates of species in your local environment.
In the spring, when it’s breeding season, there are more juvenile birds around, so it’s a great idea to use bird food that’s high in protein. Buying quality items from your bird food suppliers is especially important for young chicks. You should select bird feed that’s less likely to create a choking hazard, such as worms they can swallow easily or fat balls they can peck at.
Is it best to have a routine for wild bird feeding?
Did you know that the best way to support your local bird life, is to establish a regular feeding pattern? This means that the same wild birds instinctively gravitate to your garden at the right time, to receive the essential nutrition they need.
It also enables you to place a regular pattern of orders with your bird food suppliers. You can manage what you buy too, to avoid substantial wastage left on bird tables or in feeders. Remember, rotting (or wrong) foodstuffs can do more harm than good. It also attracts pests!
This is why clearing away uneaten bird food regularly and restocking your feeders with nutritious goodies is essential. With a range of different order sizes, you can purchase our bird food in bulk, so you always have enough bird food for your wild birds.
