Winter mix - exclusive to BBF
Our range of seasonal wild bird foods are ever popular, but this year the Winter mix
has really took off (pardon the pun) packed with all things nice for garden birds. Sunflower Hearts, Suet pellets, Granulated Peanuts and Mealworms. Good for all species this mix will see your garden birds over the Winter months and through into Spring. Blackbirds are already starting to establish territories and with the mild start to Winter they will soon be
making nests. That is why it is important to ensure your wild bird food stocks are adequate, because a cold snap may be upon us in no time and the birds will be relying on the feeding stations for their food once again.
It is a strange season this year, with lots of activity, then none at all. Many people are finding they are without birds in the garden for several hours of the day and then the wild birds come back and eat with gusto. This is due to the mild conditions and they are still going back to the fields for the insects and grubs they can find, there is still some fruit around and many berries. So the garden birds have lots to choose from at the moment. I also wonder about the national numbers and whether they declined significantly last year. The RSPB bird watch
is on the 28th and 29th January and is your chance to help the RSPB count the number of birds and species in the country. It has gained tremendous following and is fun for the family to take part in. All the details are on the RSPB website
, just follow the link and get ready for the big count days!
