First frost - time to stock up

Posted by British Bird Food 18/10/2011 0 Comment(s)
Today saw the first frost of the year in North Shropshire, just a ground frost, but a chill nonetheless! As the leaves finish their Autumn fall and the berries on the hedgerows diminish, your wild garden birds will start to come back to the garden in numbers in order to find food. As they come back they will recognise where to find a reliable food source and will be far more likely to return  many times to the same feeders once they establish a routine. Feeding wild birds in your garden is a tremendously rewarding thing to do, it only takes a couple of minutes every day just to top up the feeders and give them a clean every other week, but the range of wild birds you will attract using a food such as our exclusive mixes Autumn mix or Winter mix is a terrific reward. Sit and watch the beautiful Goldfinch on your Niger feeder and maybe try some of our Finch food to attract different finches. In addition take a look on the ground below your wild bird feeding station. Lots of ground feeding birds go unnoticed, but the Dunnocks, Blackbirds, Thrushes, Chaffinch and more, all deserve a closer look at, they offer less colouor, but they abound with character and of course the Robin may well come over and say hello to you (especially if you offer some mealworms for him). Whatever your reason, feeding wild birds is a rewarding pastime and it helps protect the birds, so keep on feeding right through the winter. P.S. Don't forget the water, the birds need to wash in a bath as well as drink. The Solar Sipper is exclusive to British Bird Food in the UK and will prevent drinking water from freezing down to -7C. wild bird bathwild bird drinker
