Cold snap continues into March
Wild birds still need feeding in this weather.
Just as we think the weather men have got it right! all this week they have been predicting a warm spell before a return to windy conditions at the weekend. Well here in the Midlands, it is still bitterly cold in the wind and there has been a ground frost every morning this week.
The wild birds in the gardens and fields will need our help to support their feeding for some time to come. Many people feed their wild birds all year round and this is a good thing, but for those who stop feeding in the summer - well there is a long way to go yet.
In the mornings with the sharp frosts, it takes a few hours for the ground to thaw and the birds to be able to scrat around in the grass and hedgerows for grubs and worms, this is why it is so important to keep on feeding the garden birds for as long as possible into y=the summer months. No sooner has the winter stopped than it is the breeding season and the birds need extra supplements for their diet to enable them to keep in peak condition to raise two, three or sometimes even four broods of young birds.
Our exclusive range of seasonal bird foods is designed to provide your garden birds with the right amount of nutrition and energy for every season of the year, right now our Winter mix is great as it includes suet pellets and mealworms as well as a massive quantity of sunflower hearts, a good way to see if a bird food mix is any good is always to look at the ingredients - you want to see the expensive seeds like Sunflower hearts in predominance and less of the cheaper seeds like Wheat - non of our seasonal range contain wheat - or husks for that matter.
In a few months it will be time to feed the Spring / Summer mix and then the Autumn mix in September.
