Keep the Squirrels happy too!

Posted by British Bird Food 04/03/2012 0 Comment(s)
Adding another mix to our ever-increasing menu for your wild garden friends, we are pleased with this new Squirrel Food mix, it has lots of tempting ingredients for your Squirrels to enjoy - and to keep them away from your wild bird feeding station to boot! Peanuts with and without shells, suet pellets and fruit all make up this recipe. Feed from a Squirrel Feeder and you will ensure your Squirrels are in the area of the garden you want them to be in and they will leave your bird feeding to the birds. It has long been accepted that to feed Squirrels with their own food from a specific location and type of feeder is the best way to look after them, whilst ensuring they leave your bird feeding station to your birds. Our Heavy duty Squirrel Feeder is made by Wildlife World and as with all of their products it has been tested in the field and proven to be effective before being offered for sale. This week has seen many activities with the wild garden birds in the garden and in the fields, several nests and even eggs have been reported over this last week, a Sparrows egg and a Starlings egg were found in Ludlow and of course the Blackbirds are very busy with their nesting season well under way. If you do spot a new nest, the best thing to do is keep your distance and never touch it. Watch the occupants from several yards away and keep out of sight, this will let them get on with the business of maintaining their nest and family and allow you the privilege of watching nature in action. It is best to take some binoculars with you and then even though you are not too close, you can get a really good view of the birds. If you do get a chance to take a photograph of the nest and / or the occupants, do send us in a copy on our  report sightings page and we will paste them in the gallery for you, then they appear on the home page as well. But remember, please ensure you do not disturb the birds in your attempts to get the view you are seeking.
