Summer Glow is a summer feed packed with protein to help birds look their very best, all summer long.
A generous helping of groats helps to provide all the extra energy they need for flying around, foraging, and parading their impressive plumage. Peanuts are popular with all your garden visitors for their fatty and filling goodness, whilst niger seed nourishes from within. With the cold weather well and truly behind them, your vibrant visitors are ready for their eagerly anticipated summer showcase.
Most of our food products contain nuts or traces of nuts and are made in an environment that handles nuts. Because of this, we do not recommend that you handle any of our bird food products if you have a nut allergy.
Safflower seeds could be considered the Marmite of the bird world, as they take a little bit of getting used to for new visitors. However, once your flock of wild birds become accustomed to their high protein content and instant energy boost, they'll certainly have Safflower pinned to the top of their palate.
Groats is the name for oats that have had their husk removed. Removing this extra layer helps birds to digest less of the stuff they don't need, such as chaff, and more of the stuff they do - like wholesome oats. For the same reasons we enjoy them in our own breakfast, oats provide slow release energy that allows wild birds to maintain their weight and manage their energy levels - keeping them fuller for longer.
White Millet is a tiny seed that is favoured by small birds and ground feeders. Although it is small in size it certainly packs a punch as it is full of slow release carbohydrate. This small seed can be easily missed by bigger birds, which is why it's great to have in a mix to make sure that everyone gets a balanced feed!
Pinhead oatmeal, although small in appearance to you and me, is packed with good fats and rich oils making them a very tasty snack for a wide variety of birds. The 'pinhead' here refers to the oats being chopped up into manageable mouthfuls for little beaks. Pinhead oatmeal is particularly popular with ground feeders who like to enjoy their meals in peace without the threat of bigger bills butting in!
As the last seed that is harvested from sunflowers, black sunflower seeds are brimming with energy rich oils that can be enjoyed by many wild birds. Their thin husks are easy to break into and leave minimal mess, so they can concentrate on the eating and you can do less cleaning up!
Peanuts are a familiar favourite for many birds due to their protein-rich kernels. Calorie laden and full of fat, peanuts present the perfect treat for birds in your garden that will help see them through the changing seasons, allowing them to gain weight easily and conserve energy efficiently.
Oystershell is ground up Oyster that helps to aid birds digestion. It allows them to grind down harsher husks so they can get straight to the seed. Also a great source of calcium, oystershell is a great ingredient to have in your bird food mix to help out your feathered friends.
Sunflower hearts are a go-to for easy-to-access nutrition for smaller billed birds. Sunflower hearts are huskless striped sunflower, so this mean less mess for you and more food for your wild birds. Full of fat and oil, these seeds offer a no fuss, no mess feed for your smallest and most discerning 'customers'!
If you're used to feeding birds, then you'll know that Niger is as close to a wild bird delicacy as you can get! Niger offers unrivalled levels of rich oils that can boost your little visitors activity tenfold. The protein in these tiny black seeds keeps their plumage looking its very best and can help prevent moulting, so is a firm favourite for all wild birds.
Red Dari is an extra energising seed due to its balanced mixture of fats, oils and proteins. This nourishing nibble can be enjoyed all year round as it offers wild birds the best blend of all the nutrients they need.
Red Millet is a great grain that provides a wide variety of vitamins and minerals to wild birds that they often miss out on. It is easy to digest for birds big and small, so will go down well with all of your guests!
Striped sunflower is arguably one of the most nourishing morsels you can give to wild and hungry birds. Whilst it is full of the usual fat and oils that birds thrive on, its added vitamins and minerals are what really help birds to flourish. Larger birds are particularly fond of striped sunflower seeds as their bills can easily break into the husks to retrieve these tasty seeds.
