Wet and windy - forecast!

Winter wild bird feeding.

 

Wet and windy weather is with us for the next week or two and the birds really need our help in this weather, their natural food is being washed away and they are finding it harder to locate food sources. Feeding wild birds in your garden is a great way to help nature and to get up close to your wild bird population. It does not cost the earth and is available to anyone who has the strength to stick a feeder on their window pane.

 

Wild bird feeding stations really do come in a size to suit all situations, if you live in a flat then you can chose a window feeder or a wall mounted feeding station and enjoy watching the wild birds feed right up close. If you have a balcony or courtyard then a patio stand with feeding station fixed to it is a way of avoiding clamping or digging. A conventional garden and you are into a multitude of wild bird feeding choices. In all cases you want to be sure you get value for money and a commitment to the product from the manufacturer. Our Droll Yankees range all come with a lifetime guarantee, so if your feeder gets blown over and cracks we will arrange for a replacement part to be sent right out to you at no charge, and this is for as long as you have the feeder! we think this is the best guarantee we know of and we are very keen on it.

 

Wet weather often results in damp seed and peanuts in your feeders, there are a few ways to prevent this. A rain gaud for your tube feeder. A weather guard for the mighty Squirrel Buster Plus. a hanging feeder dome for nut feeders or seed feeders, hanging coco nuts etc. Another way to prevent damp mold is to put a little Feeder Fresh in the base of the feeder, this absorbs the damp and keeps the seed fresh.

 

What ever the weather, feeding your wild garden birds is a great pastime, and at this time of year it is super to introduce someone new to it, our Gift Vouchers make a super present and the recipient can make their own minds up as to how they want to spend them.
