How to store bird food.
Here at British Bird Food
HQ we have been filling up the bird feeders two or three times a day since the snow started! We like to keep the bird food dry in the winter and cool in the summer and the wild bird feed storage bin
provides us with just that. The storage bins stack nicely so do not take up too much room. We currently have five storage bins with the following contents, perfect for the winter months.
High energy no mess
with extra sunflower hearts
for the seed feeders.
Mixed Suet Pellets
for two seed feeders
that we use for suet only. Also in this storage bin we have suet balls
, suet blocks
, suet filled coconut and not forgetting the blue tits favourite the suet cylinder with mealworms.
Ground and Table mix
for all the Blackbirds (last count was 20 blackbirds) Starlings, Robins, Thrushes, Dunnocks, Chaffinches and Wrens.
seeds as these provide vital nutrients and energy for the birds and our regular Mr and Mrs Bullfinch love these!
And the final storage bin is a big mix of mealworms
, mixed suet pellets, dried fruit, sunflower seeds and some wheat free. We use this on the ground, table, trays, window feeders
and pretty much anywhere.
So every morninng when we go to fill up the feeders and change the water. We line up the food in the storage bins and easily fill up the feeders. It is also easy to carry to the feeding station with two handy side handles.
