Our bird feeds and seed mixes provide an ideal food for garden birds. Available in convenient refill tubs or large sacks for best value.
Over the past 50 years or so the many of our ‘common’ birds have dramatically declined. There will be many reasons, but the changing climate and agricultural practices causing a lack of food in the summer and winter are no doubt contributing. Once common birds, our song thrushes, sparrows and starlings (amongst others) are all struggling to survive and are now red listed as birds of extreme conservation concern.
Supplementary feeding at the right times of year can help your garden to support lots of birds. Provide food, water and shelter by creating a wildlife friendly garden full of fruits, berries, seeds and insects.
Avian Influenza and Wild Birds:
With increasing number of avian influenza cases around the country (both in poultry and wild birds) it is essential that poultry keepers apply biosecurity measures to ensure we all continue to enjoy the wild birds in our gardens as well as keeping poultry. To do this simply minimise direct and indirect contact between poultry and wild birds. Make sure measures are taken to discourage wild birds (in particular gulls and wild waterfowl) from entering your chicken run and from having access to your poultry feed and water stations. Keep your wild bird feeders a distance away from your poultry enclosures to discourage any cross-contamination.
